The Lagos State University has sarcastically postponed its coming examinations following the death of Britain’s longest reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
This comes after a Twitter user said it would be unfair for the school to hold exams in the same month that the queen died.
“It doesn’t make sense if we start exams the same month the queen died,” @Lasulife said.
“We need LASU to postpone exams till next month so we can properly mourn the queen.”
In response, LASU said the exams have been postponed but only for those who just discovered that they are the Queen’s lost relatives.
The school tweeted, “Good suggestion. Exams are hereby postponed for those of you who have suddenly discovered that you are the Queen’s lost relatives. Accept our sympathy.
“For those who aren’t, please prepare to write exam, as scheduled.”
Meanwhile, the apex socio-cultural organisation in Igbo land, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has cautioned the Federal government against renaming the University of Nigeria Nsukka after Queen Elizabeth.
According to Ohanaeze, such a move is best for Aso Rock in Abuja or other parts of the North.
However, the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, on Friday, announced that all Nigerian flags must fly at half-mast in honour of the deceased British monarch.
Aregbesola, who made this known in a statement in Abuja, said such should be adhered to on September 11 and 12.
“We commiserate with the government and the people of UK and all the affected people of the Commonwealth and the global community.
“The Queen is dead, long live the King,” he said.
Queen Elizabeth who ascended the throne in 1952 died at the age of 96, surrounded by family members and well-wishers.
To honour her, the English Premier League on Friday postponed all games scheduled to hold this weekend.
