LAG

A student of the Faculty of Environmental Sciences at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Adeyeye Olorunfemi, has been suspended for four semesters for criticizing the management of the Yaba-based school.
Adeyeye, along with the rest of the UNILAG Student Union leadership, was suspended for participating in the peaceful student protests of April 6 and 8, 2016. Those protests led to the school being shut and the Student Union body being suspended indefinitely.
According to Adeyeye, he was only suspended for criticizing the school management and highlighting their inability to effectively manage the institution and student rights as “democrats”.
In an article published as a Facebook post, Adeyeye alleged that the Vice Chancellor of UNILAG, Prof. Rahman Bello, was unfit to run the institution, adding that the resources channeled into training Bello were a “waste”.
“Vice Chancellor sir!, you remain a first class Chemical engineering graduate from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife.What has happened to the Great Ife in you!. Our power generation is deteriorating and you are alive . The Nation’s investment of knowledge on you to make you a scholar is a WASTE. Your first class honours degree is the true definition of a FIASCO,” Adeyeye said in the Facebook article.

He further went on to allege that the Senate and VC of UNILAG did not care about the welfare of the students before going on to mourn the death of a former lecturer and the youngest professor ever professor of Mechanical Engineering.

“Now,this is our own issue; Welfarism, we can’t find them. Are they telling me that the Name issue is greater than Welfarism. Is the aesthetics of a building more important than the structural stability? , If you don’t know, go ask the MD, Lekki Gardens,” Adeyeye said in the post.
“Are there no “common sense” persons in the management anymore? We mourn late Prof. Ayodele Awojobi freshly.”
The former UNILAG student leader has received a lot of praise and backlash on social media following the Facebook post and subsequent videos that emerged showing him sticking to his guns.
There has been no official word from the university management on Adeyeye’s fiery comments as at the time of writing this article.
