The union leaders were suspended by the university following their participation in the April 6 and 7 protest staged by the students to draw the attention of the management to the deplorable state of facilities on campus. NAUS made the appeal in a press statement made available to campus journalists at the Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado- Ekiti, the National Secretariat of the association.
According to the statement jointly signed by the National President of the association, Jonathan Adekunle and Chairman of the Campus Monitoring Committee Lagos State Axis, Chinedu Anudu respectively, the union wondered why the management took such a decision, which they said was not in the best interest of students.
The union noted that the decision of UNILAG management was equivalent to infringing on the rights and freedom of the students, which contravenes the 1999 Constitution and Africa Charter on Human Rights which support the freedom of association bill that gives students the rights to elect their leaders and maintain a union without any interference from the university authorities.
Apart from the reinstatement of the suspended students’ union leaders, NAUS also appealed for the lifting of ban on the university’s Students’ Union and immediate conduct the students’ union elections.
“NAUS hereby appeals to the management of UNILAG to tamper justice with mercy and recall the affected students so that they could continue their studies,” the union pleaded in the statement.
