The students of Lagos State University, LASU has pleaded with the school management and the Lagos State Governor to please re-open the university so that they can continue with their academic activities. The management of the institution had on March 25, 2015 shut down the school in a statement titled ‘Election recess,’ where the students and workers were asked to vacate the university premises. It however added that a resumption date will be announced later on.
But the students are saying it’s now a month and four days and they are suspecting the management are not willing to re-open the school despite that the elections are very much over.
The Public Relations Officer of the Lagos State University Students’ Union, Mr. Adebanjo Fatai, however lamented that the state government and the varsity management have treated the reopening of the institution with levity. Fatai said rather than reopening the institution for the commencement of academic activities, the institution management went online to publish an article, “Declared recess is still very much in force.”
He added, “The students’ Union of LASU respectfully assert that the online bulletin released by LASU Management shows how irrational and reckless the Management is towards the reopening of LASU.
“The love of LASUites is never in the heart of the Management as we can deduce that the management and the state government are not ready to reopen the school,” he said in a statement.
