The University of Ibadan has lifted its ban on
students’ union activities two years after a
suspension.
According to an official of the institution, Tunji
Oladejo, the Senate reached a concensus during
its meeting and decided to lift the
ban.
The university had suspended the union
following a protest by students demanding
school identity cards, which had been paid for
but never issued.
Vice Chancellor of the institution, Idowu
Olayinka, accused the students’ union leaders at
the time of disrupting the academic calendar of
the school.
He accused former president of the union, Ojo
Adereni, of insubordination and disrespect.
Adereni was later rusticated by the disciplinary
council of the school.
