Non-Teaching Staffs Shut Down UNILAG


On Thursday, 14/12/1017 the non-teaching staff unions locked the two gates leading into UNILAG restricting vehicular traffic in protest of non-payment of their entitlements by the federal government.

The recently appointed Vice Chancellor of the university, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, a professor, led a group of people to break the padlocks used in locking the university’s main gate, flaring the situation.

Kehinde Ajibade, the Chairman of the Non-Academic Staff Union in the university, described VC actions as “highly disappointing.”

“Our union is a stakeholder in the university system,” Mr. Ajibade said while addressing union members afterward.

“The vice chancellor is not for academic alone, he is for both academic and non-academic members of the university. I’ve never seen a place where a VC breaks the keys used in locking gates.”




Mr. Ajibade further accused the vice chancellor of conniving with the federal government to cheat them.
