The University of Lagos (UNILAG) Student Affairs Department’s Deputy Dean, Dr Karo Ogbinaka has stated that the suspended students’ union (ULSU) are working for their own selfish interests rather than that of the institution or its students.
This is coming as Lagos lawyer, Ebun Adegboruwa, wrote the university on behalf of the union, seeking reversal of the suspension and withdrawal of the undertaking the students have to sign before Friday or be taken to court.
According to The Nation, Ogbinaka said most of the ULSU leaders were under investigation for defaulting in various ways in the institution.
“It is obvious that they are fighting some selfish and fraudulent interests because the demands they tendered to management just two days before the protest were based on trivial issues, not light or water or even higher cost of living. As a matter of fact, the President, Muhammed Olaniyan sent a very disrespectful message to the Vice Chancellor (Prof Rahamon Bello) just after the protest, making direct insults at him.”
