…wants Umudike’s VC to resign
The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has given Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State, a one-week ultimatum to reopen the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) or face a mass protest.
NANS also handed Prof. Francis Otunta, the Vice-Chancellor of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, a seven-day ultimatum to resign for maladministration.
These deadlines were issued by the president of the student body, Chinonso Obasi, who said Ajimobi has been nonchalant about the closure of LAUTECH for eight months.
Obi said NANS would “relocate its Headquarters to Government House in Ibadan and Umudike.”
He said: “NANS chides the Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi over the neglect of LAUTECH, Ogbomosho which has been under lock and key for almost eight months. We see his recent utterances that went viral on the social media during the students peaceful protest to Agodi Government House as shameful, uncivil and belittling the status of an Executive Governor. The governor is hereby issued with a seven-day ultimatum to reopen LAUTECH or face mass protest.
“Similarly, ÑANS calls on the Vice Chancellor of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike to resign within seven days for gross incompetence and maladministration. Failure to heed this patriotic call would be met with serious resistance as we shall not hesitate to occupy and chase him out of the university.”
