Striking workers warn UNILAG to postpone convocation – Punch … – The Punch


Sodiq Oyeleke

There are strong indications that the University of Lagos may postpone its 50th convocation ceremonies scheduled to commence on February 19, as the effects of the ongoing strike embarked upon by non-academic staff at the university bite harder.

It was gathered that the workers, under the aegis of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, the Non- Academic Staff Union of Universities and the Associated Institutions and the National Association of Academic Technologists, have shut some administrative buildings on the university campus.

The striking workers have also extended their protest to the UNILAG Staff School, causing panic among pupils and parents.

Speaking to our correspondent, the chairman of NASU-UNILAG, Kehinde Ajibade, said the university authorities have been warned to postpone the convocation.

He noted that the striking workers might not supply social amenities needed during the convocation.

He said, “The stand of the union is that the university management should suspend the (convocation) operations.

“There is no way to do that (the convocation) when the three unions are on strike.

“The environment is not going to be conducive, no water and electricity, among others. The management of the UNILAG is expected to do the needful and they should postpone the convocation ceremony.”

When contacted on the telephone on Monday, the university’s Principal Assistant Registrar, Information Unit, Mrs. Taiwo Oloyede, expressed uncertainty over the organisation of the convocation as scheduled.

She said, “I cannot say anything categorical on that. We are having a management meeting today and I hope that we will resolve all issues relating to the convocation.”
