Following students’ protests over shortage of power supply and water supply, the management of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, has ordered an indefinite closure of the institution.
This was communicated via a circular which stresses that no student should be seen in the halls of residence after 10 am on Friday.
It also indicated that the decision was reached after an emergency meeting of the institution’s Senate.
The school said the closure was also due to the difficulties faced by the “large number of students” living off campus to attend classes as a result of the lingering fuel crisis.
“Senate noted that the problem of poor municipal service is a national issue that the governments at both state and federal level are addressing,” the circular stated.
The circular added that a decision to re-open the school for normal academic activities will be taken as soon as there is an improvement in municipal services, noting that both the state and federal governments will be addressing the matter.
