UNILAG shifts convocation
The University of Lagos has announced the postponement of its 50th convocation, earlier scheduled to begin on February 19.
The Principal Assistant Registrar, Information unit, Mrs. Taiwo Oloyede, disclosed this in a statement.
She said it was due to challenges posed by the ongoing strike by the non-teaching staff of the institution.
The statement reads: “Although necessary arrangements for a smooth ceremony were at an advanced stage, it has become imperative to postpone the ceremony due to the charged and unpredictable atmosphere on campus.
“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. This could 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 would be communicated in due course, and urged members of the university community to continue their lawful activities.
