Disturbed by the closure of their school, students of the Lagos State University, Ojo, have appealed to Babatunde Fashola, Lagos State governor, to reopen the institution.
The students’ appeal came barely 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.
Worried by the continued closure of their school even after the elections, the students, in a statement made available to the press and signed by Adebanjo Fatai, the Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State University Students’ Union, lamented that the state government and the school management have treated reopening of the institution with levity.
Fatai said that rather than reopening for the commencement of academic activities, the institution management went online to publish an article titled, “declared recess is still very much in force.”
“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 student union leader said.
