ASUU Strike: UNILAG Students “Won’t Give In on Threats”


Tuesday, September 24, 2013 — Students of the University of Lagos (UniLag) insist on holding protest against the lingering industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), despite the fact that the place is swarmed with security men.

It would be recalled that ASUU has been on strike since the beginning of summer-2013, as the Government failed to implement the agreement it signed with the union in 2009.

The UniLag students also urge to reinstate their Student Union Government (SUG), as well as the reversal on the hike in tuition at the Lagos State University (LASU).

Comrade Yaqub Eleto, coordinator of the Lagos State chapter, Joint Campus Committee of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), says the body has a responsibility to ensure welfare of all students.

Eleto assures students would not capitulate, lamenting that for many years, UniLag has been without a Students’ Union, and LASU school fees are too high. He observed Nigeria is a developing country, and students should be encouraged to get education, instead of being scared away with high fees.

“ASUU strike is into its third month now, and we cannot keep watching things as they are,” the student leader said further. “We are going ahead.”
