UNIBEN Students Threaten To Beat Lecturers Over University Closure - VC by Odewaleadesoye(m): 10:30am On Jan 13
The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benin, Prof Lilian Salami, on Wednesday, says the school management is ready to resume academic activities in a safe and secure manner.

She said the university management will enforce strict compliance to COVID-19 protocols to protect students and members of staff from being exposed to coronavirus infections.

The vice-chancellor spoke while featuring on NTA Good Morning Nigeria breakfast show monitored by The PUNCH.

Salami said some students have started issuing threats to beat up lecturers should the closure of public universities persists.

Students of public universities have been at home since March 2020 when the Academic Staff Union of Universities began a nine-month-long strike over certain demands. The union, however, conditionally suspended the industrial action on December 24, 2020, after a lot of foot-dragging by lecturers and the Federal Government.

Yet, when students were hopeful of returning to classrooms, the country entered the second wave of the pandemic while the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 subsequently ordered schools to remain closed till January 18, 2021 to contain the spike in COVID-19 infections in Nigeria.

But ASUU has insisted that it is not safe for lecturers and students to return to classrooms as it cannot guarantee social distancing in crowded classes and congested hostels.

Reacting on the television programme on Wednesday, the UNIBEN vice-chancellor said the school authority will do all in its power to enforce COVID-19 protocols in the university community.

Salami said, “I want to say categorically that Vice-Chancellors are responsible persons having gone through the furnace. We will not in any way want to expose our staff, our students to any danger.

“Having said that, public-funded universities are far from what they ought to be. We have said this over and over that there is poor funding, infrastructure are down and decayed. The ratio of staff to students is quite large that for proper learning to take place, we have to address these issues.

“We know that these issues exist but how long are we going to wait until these issues are taken care of? These should not continue to be used as reasons why schools should not reopen. We will make do with what we have now available. For instance, we know that residential students are about 10 to 15 per cent of total students’ population. We will as much as possible enforce compliance and that is all we can do.

“Yes, they (students) are very restless; yes, they will want to go and visit friends but we will try as much as possible – and I think all Vice-Chancellors will do that – to protect our students and our staff so that we don’t unduly expose them to COVID-19. But to think that if all of these are not taken care of, we will not reopen, I can assure you that in the next ten years, the kids will all be home.

“We know all these deficiencies and we will continue to adjust and renovate the structures on campus. It is a gradual thing, there is no magic about it.

“On a lighter note, I have heard some students say, look, if you don’t open, we will beat up the Vice-Chancellors and start beating up the lecturers. Maybe other Vice-Chancellors can take up the beatings but I can assure you that Professor Salami is too fragile to be beaten.”

The vice-chancellor further said that UNIBEN has started the production of automated handwashing equipment, hand sanitisers and other materials crucial in dealing with the pandemic.

It's so pathetic the our school behaves. So after collecting that huge amount from the government they decided to hold us back. Mean while thier refusal to teach, was the reason we were home during those times.

Lol... Nigerian lecturers are the most corrupt people on earth. I tell you the truth, it'll benefit Nigeria more to shut down our universities and order everyone to go and farm.

Okon gained admission late into the university but was expected to graduate before age 26.
However, upon his admission, his village people rolled out drums for merriment and celebrations to the delight of their associates in the diaspora.

On that unfortunate day, the lyrics of Teni's for your case was modified and without care, he danced with much abandon for he was joyous!

Suddenly, the village people located ASUU, and as if that was not enough, they invoked and deposited coronavirus into the fray.

Okon realising these circumstances ran to his pastor who told him
..."until you decide to pray and cast out evil and also hold the government accountable, your expected date of graduation would be when you clock 30".

Learn what you want to learn, or pick what you want to pick out of this story... I only told you a tale of Okon. The funny thing is that he is someones brother and anothers son

Anyways, I sparogatively believe the Den of Lions, my great citadel, should be the ones roaring! Well, since it is not by who roars best but by who grabs and tears the best... I will hold my peace!
