Finally! UI Lifts Ban On Student Union Activities After 2 Years

Osagbemi Anthony

The management of the University of Ibadan (UI) has lifted the ban on Students Union activities.

This is coming two years after the union activities were suspended on May 30, 2017.

Ojo Aderemi, the then President of the Student Union Government was later Suspended.

The UI management claimed that the union was proscribed due to the misdemeanours of the union leaders.

It also accused the Ojo Aderemi-led administration of disrupting academic activities by leading a protest against the non-issuance of identity (ID) cards and ‘unruly behaviour’ of the president.

Before now, the management had rejected demands to reinstate the union, with the vice-chancellor, Idowu Olayinka, saying in 2018 that it was not yet time to do so.

He said that the union could not be reinstated when the university calendar was yet to be stable.
