Unilag To Be Shut Down Tomorrow by zeekeyboy: 5:08pm On Apr 27, 2016
NANS REJECT MOVES TO SUBJUGATE UNILAG
STUDENTS

“The future would have no pity for those men who,
possesses the exceptional privilege, of being able to
speak the words of truth to their oppressors, haven taken
refuge in an attitude of passivity, or mute indifference and
sometimes in cold complicity”. (Frantz Fanon)

It is most unfortunate that rather than finding progressive
prescriptions for demands of the agitating students, poor
welfare and hike in price of commodities, the school
management is scratching the issue on the head by
portraying the students as custodians of exuberance and
scapegoat of indiscipline, putting in place mechanisms to
subdue and incapacitate the students from exercising
their constitutional rights, not minding the root cause of
indiscipline to be injustice and inequality.
The suspension of University of Lagos Student Union
(ULSU) until further notice came to us in rude shock
despite the submission of our position and
recommendations to the investigative panel. We contend
the suspension or banning of students union has never
been and will never be the solution to proactive/vibrant
unionism. We advice the management give up on
effecting the suspension and other unrevealed plans to
further victimise or intimidate the union officer to have
opened up their poor academic, administrative and
domestic welfare.

Compelling students to sign undertaking and indemnity
form is laughable; students taking re-absorption oaths
requires clarification. The taming tactics imbibe by the
management reveals the underbelly as calculatedly
designed to paralyse effective’s student agitations,
clampdown student from their liberty and a capital
disrespect of the young adulthood. We are to face this
much, handcuff ourselves before law as we are expected
to keep mute on the rots and maladies of our grate
Akokite.

NANS DEMAND
Gone are the days of “bread and butter” unionism, the
current century cannot afford to breed a generation of
youths who are merely academic geniuses but who are
politically robots and ideological nonentities.

We demand the total reverse in suspension/dissolution of
University of Lagos Student Union (ULSU).

We reject outrightly the signing of undertaking/ indemnity
form and taking of re-absorption oath by any students.
We request a proper address of the students demands.
We call for a resolution meeting with the management.
It is in the interest of peace and progress; we like to plead
to UNILAG management to desist from scratching their
nose with the fangs of a viper.

Experience shows that fire burns! A goat does not bite
except when push to the wall. Nigeria students shall not
hesitate to mobilise to continually shut down activities of
the institution until our demands are met.
We however give a grace of 72hrs ultimatum for our
demands to be granted (which elapse on Thursday 28th
of April 2016) before we embark on our operation
#SHUTDOWNUNILAG.

LASUSU STANDS WITH UNILAG STUDENTS' UNION:

Injustice somewhere, they say, is a threat to justice everywhere. GREATEST LASUITES! We all are aware of the attempts by the University of Lagos Management to subjugate and enslave the students of UNILAG. In this light, the National Association of Nigerian Students,NANS, has invited LASUITES,being the most militant but reasonable students in Africa to a peaceful protest at UNILAG on Thursday,28th of April, 2016. The protest is aimed at warning all University managements across Nigeria that, Students' Unionism is here to stay and together, we,all Nigerian Students say NO to :
1.Suspension of Students' Union bodies.

2. Victimization of Students' Union leaders.

3. Embezzlement of funds meant for Students' welfarism, infrastructural development and

4.Authocratic and draconian administrative techniques.

TOGETHER : WE STAND!!!!!!!!!
divided : we fall!

ALUTA CONTINUA, VICTORIA ASCERTA!!!!!!!

You will get yourselves in more trouble and then you'll still sign more undertakings. Dialogue is the best way just simple dialogue and if you must protest please do it peacefully don't go around like rabid dogs destroying everywhere. We wish you the best of luck

Re: Unilag To Be Shut Down Tomorrow by ORI1(m): 7:18am On Apr 28, 2016
Ooshey,na we dey dere,na we get am!.

Omo,there was no protest today o.A meeting was held in the early hours of today between the VC and the nans president or rep. I dunno whether he was bribed or threatened, but d guy just came out looking lily livered. In summary,nans president ti gbabòde sha.unilag SU is on their own.
The school management is even using underhanded and playing dirty.About 14 police vehicles with the police brandishing their guns(as if na bokoharam dem dey prepare for) at the school gate in case any protest might happen. They even go as far as changing d minds of well meaning activists who were in support of ulsu's movement.
Sorry to lasu peeps tho,they and another School came for the protest ,those guys get liver gan.

I'm a student of AAUA and I'll support any action the students body are taking against the bureaucrats on this except violence. The rate at which these men treat students like toddlers calls for a proactive concern. Why on earth should a lecturer charged with the responsibility of impacting knowledge point straight to a student and say; " You will not graduate in this Varsity." What offence should warrant such statement from one who once attended a Varsity too?

...and if violence is the only language they would understand, the students should constructively invoke the spirit of Aluta and do the needful! Enough of these creche and kindergarten treatments in our universities!
Government should make a law that secures the right of students to speak when they are being oppressed. Activists all over Nigeria should speak for us! Dele Momodu should pick his pen now and write on this injustice! His pen is not meant only to write open letter to Saraki. Femi Falana should stand up and save the institution he was once a member! Keyamo should do as Gani had done!
