SOUTH MILWAUKEE WI. (GVE) – Facts have emerged on why the University of Lagos (UNILAG) postponed its 50th Convocation previously scheduled to commence on February 19.
In a statement released on Tuesday by the Principal Assistant Registrar, Information Unit, Mrs. Taiwo Oloyede, the institution explained that the postponement was due to challenges posed by the ongoing strike by the non-teaching staff of the institution.
UNILAG authorities revealed in the statement, that: “Although necessary arrangements for a smooth ceremony were at an advanced stage, however, it has become imperative to postpone the ceremonies due to the charged and unpredictable atmosphere on campus.”
The statement also partly read: “The nefarious activities of the unions witnessed in the last few weeks under the guise of a strike have the capacity to snowball into a major crisis and mar the carefully laid out arrangements for a successful convocation.
“The university remains committed to providing a conducive atmosphere to foster quality teaching and research, as well as to produce graduates that can compete with their counterparts globally.”
The management added that a suitable date for the convocation would be communicated to the general public as soon as it has been agreed.
