UNILAG Students Clash With Alumnus Who Says ‘ULSU president needs flogging’
Oluwafisola Nelson graduated from then University of Lagos (UNILAG) in 2014. He’s currently doing his masters in the same school.
UNILAG authorities suspended academic activities indefinitely because students protested over water and power failure.
Nelson, a student leader in his undergraduate days, is not happy with student union (ULSU or SUG) president Mohammed Olaniyan. He wrote on Sunday…
I listened to the current SUG president in UNILAG and he so sounds like a student who is campaigning for an untimely and unripe personality aggrandizement…very impulsive and void of decorum.
He just made a ridicule of himself. From experience, I would respectfully request a meeting with the Vice Chancellor and that was with the consultation of my Oga’s in the Council of Faculty Presidents during my set.
I am sure that many level-headed students who have really come to learn in thick and thin will blame his aura and manner which have not endeared the blessing and favour of the UNILAG MANAGEMENT.
He needs to be schooled on the importance of decorum and public conduct. He can protest and get the management to do the students bidding if he were a well-oriented and teachable leader.
This and many more are the matters to address before such character gets into bigger public offices. Now, the domino effect of his decision has sent students home, INDEFINITELY! Wow!
Who is at the receiving end? Our Lecturers who will go do other businesses and still get paid for the days they never get to lecture the protesting student?
Or will the VC,the DVC’s and other top UNILAG officials be stripped of their qualifications as Dr.’s and Profesors’s?
That students leader(s)should be called to his home front and canned for not representing well.
And here are the reactions from on that post…containing one from a UNILAG student who called Nelson “fool” for saying the SUG president lacked decorum.
