As Economy Bites, University of Lagos Shut Down Academic Session Over Fuel Crisis

The management of the University of Lagos on Thursday ordered the immediate closure of the institution ?following students’ protests over epileptic power supply and poor water supply.

In a circular issued Thursday, 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 management also ordered the students to vacate their halls of residence immediately.

“A decision to re-open for normal academic activities will be made as soon as municipal services improve,” the circular said.

“All members of the University community are enjoined to go about their normal activities as adequate security measures have been put in place.”
