University of Ibadan Students Protest Over Power Outage
Academic and social activities were yesterday paralysed at the University of Ibadan where the students embarked on peaceful protests over power outage.
NSB findings revealed that vehicular movements were restricted and lecturers denied access to their offices and lecture rooms.
The newly sworn-in executives who held a meeting with the school management attributed the protest to accumulated anger over erratic power supply at the premier university.
There was a rally held early in the morning where the students resolved to go on the peaceful protest to make their point known.
Findings indicated that there were no cases of violence as at the time NSB left the university campus.
The director of public communications of the university, Mr. O.M Oladejo told our reporter that the management was addressing the problem and peace would soon be restored.
Mr. Oladejo attributed the conflict to communication gap between the new executive and the university management, adding that the out-gone executive members may not have properly briefed their successors.
He however commended both the students and their executive members for the maturity displayed while the protest lasted.
