Lagos - The National Association of University Students has demanded the immediate re-opening of the Lagos State University.
The association noted that pursuant to last month, in which it faulted the management’s decision to announce an election recess for students and staff of the university without stipulating date of resumption, it was four weeks now since after the elections across the federation without any formal pronouncement on resumption date.
“We would like to reiterate that the continued shut down of academic activities on our various campuses is taking its toll on our students, and the Students’ Union is firmly against this. It should be noted that upon the announcement of the said recess,” the union stated.
The union said it was waiting for management to give a specific date of resumption.

“They never did,” read a statement.
“It is four weeks now since after the federal and states elections without post elections violence. The political atmosphere has been calm and peaceful and as such, we believe the management should have toll the line of other higher institutions that declared election.”
The union thus demanded the immediate settlement between the management and staff unions and granting of the latter’s demands and meeting the rescheduling of convocation ceremony before the end of April.
“The Lagos State Government should assume the position of an unbiased umpire in the ongoing crisis between the Management and the Staff Unions.”
