UNILAG Shut Down

The Senate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) on Wednesday
announced the suspension of all
academic activities in the institution.
The Senate further issued an
ultimatum to all students to vacate the University’s premises by 11am and instructed the school security to arrest any student seeing in the premises after the deadline.
The decision of the school authority to shut down the university for two weeks may not be unconnected to the protest by students over the change of name of the institution to Moshood Abiola University, Lagos.
President Goodluck Jonathan on
Tuesday announced that the
Federal Government have decided
to rename the University of Lagos
after the late MKO Abiola, who died while struggling for the growth of democracy in Nigeria.
The president said that the
institution will now be known as
Moshood Abiola University, Lagos.
On Wednesday, students of the
University of Lagos disrupted the
flow of traffic in Lagos by blocking
the third mainland bridge in
continuation of their protest over
the renaming of their institution
after Abiola.
