Why UNILAG Crisis Won’t End Anytime Soon

UNILAG Crisis

Incase you are not aware,the ongoing crisis between the management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and its non-academic staff unions and it won’t end anytime soon which means more hardship for the students and continuous disruption of the institution’s academic calendar.

It is no more news that there is usually a clash between the management and the staff, however this clash is evidently one that’s here to last a long while due to the approach employed to engage the crisis. There is therefore no understanding of the motivations of all parties involved creating loopholes and difficulty in finding a compromise that works for everyone.

The crisis at UNILAG has remained unresolved because the university’s authority and the Federal government have refused to properly engage this very old problem but the illegal detention of some leaders of this non-academic unions by the police is a wrong approach to solve the crisis.

According to news report, the duo of Oriwaye Adefolalu and Adekola Adetomiwa, leaders of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) in the university were arrested in the wee hours of Thursday, February 15, 2018, at their separate residences in Ikorodu and Yaba

All Efforts by their lawyer Femi Falana (SAN) to secure their release from Police custody proved abortive as the police declined their release based on “orders from above”. Another twist was added to the scenario on Friday, February 16, 2018, as they were transferred from Police detention to the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS).

The unions have accused the Vice Chancellor of UNILAG, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe of being responsible for the arrest of the Union leaders, an accusation Ogundipe has denied. However, denying the accusation is not enough, Ogundipe being a new man in office has set the stage of uneasy governance for himself as he cannot run the institution without these union members.

UNILAG has always been an institution with virile unionism and that cannot be suppressed by any Vice chancellor. The arrest of the Union leaders is unjust and uncalled for as its a direct call for anarchy in that institution. The management of UNILAG and the school governing council is advised to tow the path of reason by securing the release of the detained union leaders and forging an harmonious relationship with them.

With that not in place, Ogundipe has prepared himself for a stormy tenure ahead

Daddy Freeze, via an instagram post has slammed Bishop Oyedepo of Winners Chapel.

Freeze reacted to the video by dropping the below post on his page.

 And he is there quoting
Phillipians 419

Pun intended

Why doesn't he quote verses that show the true state of the disciples who were poor, homeless and hungry? Or why doesn't he quote verses that show that the disciples shared everything and no one owned anything??? Why doesn't he tell us the real truth about how the disciples lived and died?
