The management of the College of Medicine of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), has asked students to vacate their hotels latest by Monday due to the ongoing nationwide strike declared by lecturers of public universities across the country.
The information was disclosed in a notice to the mediacl students and made available on Friday.
“This is to inform all the students of the College of Medicine and the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Lagos, Idi-Araba, that the management has directed that the hostel accomodation exercise should be suspended until further notice.
“In light of the above, it has also directed that the Medical students’ hostels be closed and students should vacate their hostels latest by Monday, 4th February, 2019 in view of the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike,” the notice read.
ASUU and the Federal Government have been at loggerheads since the union commenced its strike action last year November.
According to the National President of the union, Biodun Ogunyemi, the strike was indefinite and comprehensive unless the FG agrees to their demands.
