Please make this go round on Twitter, WhtasApp etc, until somebody does the needful.

This heap of refuse is a permanent feature at the main front gate of the University of Lagos - a university that prides itself as the foremost "centre of excellence", as you drive in from the St. Finbarrs road axis. (The access road itself is story for another day).

We need to constantly put our leaders on their toes and demand action.

Modified: This is primarily directed at the local government authorities. I believe though that the university could leverage on its goodwill to keep the institution's vicinity as decent as possible.

Where is the gate? So people should help you spread false information to achieve what exactly?

I have never seen this mess anywhere at the gate before. If you visited a slum around the school, be sure to put up the exact location.

You may need to edit your title @op. I passed the main gate and in Unilag now but didn't notice this

if you drive in through (or out towards) Yaba, you might miss it.
In fact, this dump is directly opposite the illegal park where keke napep pick and drop passengers at UNILAG gate.

If the eyes have become so accustomed to sights that are eyesores, you might not recognize an ugly sight when you see one.

If you go out anytime soon, as soon as you go out of the gate, please look ahead of you by that private hostel directly opposite the gate.
You can help confirm or debunk this.

Again, I haven't noticed that.

However, if it were even there, should Unilag be responsible for cleaning the dirt littered by market woman somewhere away from the school because it's the university of first choice?

Unilag has its boundaries and if you want to do investigative journalism to trend, get into the school, take a few courses on journalism and be professional in your conduct.

In the meantime, be free to blame it and any other thing you see in Lagos on Unilag. Enjoy.

You need to calm down. I have the least interest in "trending", whatever that means to you.
If you can't see your dirty surrounding, that's nobody's fault.

In your logic, if you have a decent house and some some random folks, whether market women or market men, decide to start dumping refuse opposite or adjacent to your property, you would just live with it, with the attendant public image liability and possible health implications for your household, because the chairman of your CDA is not doing his job. Good luck on that!

What better sense dictates, if I respect my visitors and value my own decency, is that I either take measures to stop them by calling the attention of the relevant authorities or I take responsibility for cleaning up the place..

This is even moreso if I am a a respected member of the community, like UNILAG is a respected, reputable institution who might only need to make a few calls to correct the situation, if it places a value on decency and cleanliness around its institution.

Meanwhile, my call is primarily to the relevant authorities, esp the local government concerned. If somebody in UNILAG consider themselves relevant to the situation, then let them do something about it.

That was probably ur first time around Unilag because that refuse is nowhere near Unilag Gate. It is where the female private hostel is located , just after MRS fuel station so I don't know what u want Unilag mgt to do.

Rather than bash the school (bcus ur headline makes it seem so), write a letter to Lagos mainland govt to complain.

Next time, no bash my Alma mater like that again.
