My source at the Senate told me immediately the issue started that it was a case of ‘misappropriation not going round’. Sad.

I am confident that the Nigerian mind is speaking already through someone at the sight of the headline of this article that ‘this guy does not want to graduate’. “Isn’t this the same student activist who was suspended for 4 Semesters for protesting and writing articles?

I have decided to wade into the recent imbroglio at the University of Lagos and share my thoughts unbiased, relating to some articles I have seen online and press statements even from the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The Sports Centre 16 million naira that went down the drain under the ‘directorship’ of Cecilia Arinye and a new rumoured allegation of 40 million naira allotted to renovate Dr Folashade Ipaye’s house remain carpeted till this moment. That it (40 million naira) could even be worthy to be a rumour in a University is unfounding because Donald Trump, a ‘whole’ President of the United States spends 10 million dollars annually on renovation.

This is the reality here while elsewhere Professors are busy in the libraries and research centres trying to save the World. How do you expect a Professor who has received 30 million dollars in grants from Ford to be hustling to be a Vice-Chancellor or a Hall Master so he can start allocating bed spaces to his retinue of girlfriends? He is busy of course.

There is an urgent need for the resources of the University to come under democratic control and management which should also involve students. It is highly unreasonable how the major constituents of a Community are not part of decision making; decisions that affect their well-being and the quality of what they offer the World in the future of work. Do you know that the University of Lagos like most Universities have failed to establish a fully constituted Budget Monitoring Committee involving key stakeholders? Despite an agreement signed between ASUU and the Federal Government as far back as 2013 to check the spending of resources. It provides for students to be members of the University Budget Monitoring Committee (UBMC). This would bring about the much-talked-about probity and accountability by both parties. This is therefore a call for students to begin to organize towards enthroning a radical student leadership on that Campus.

Adeyeye Olorunfemi is a student activist under political victimization at the University of Lagos.

UnilagNigeria JAMBHQ He can always defer. Can't he? UnilagNigeria JAMBHQ If Prof. Pierre-Simon, Marquis de Laplace could be admitted into count university in 1806 at age 16, this is 2019 we should give opportunity to exceptional students at age 15. I advise UNILAG to give conditional admission to him, at least guarantee his placement by age 16 UnilagNigeria JAMBHQ Another injustice...black people particularly Nigerian in position of authority lacks discretion in majority of their decision. Why will age limitation be considered as a criteria for university admission. It's like limiting the progress of entire Nigeria.
