Lagos—Worried by the continued closure of their school, students of the Lagos State University, Ojo, yesterday appealed to Governor Babatunde Fashola to reopen the institution.
The students’ position came one month and six days after the management of the institution, in a statement titled ”Election recess,” asked the students and workers to vacate the university premises starting from March 25th, 2015, adding that the resumption date will be announced later.
The students, in a statement made available to Vanguard and signed by the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State University Students’ Union, Mr. Adebanjo Fatai, lamented that the state government and the varsity management was not ready to reopen the school as they have treated reopening of the institution with levity.
Fatai said that rather than reopening the institution for the commencement of academic activities, the institution management went online to publish an article, “Declared recess is still very much in force.”
He added “The students’ Union of LASU respectfully assert that the online bulletin released by LASU Management shows how irrational and reckless the Management is towards the reopening of LASU.
“The love of LASUites is never in the heart of the Management as we can deduce that the management and the state government are not ready to reopen the school.”
