The Medical students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) were forced to protest over drastic shortage in power supply and the non-conducive living condition of the hostel.
According to reports, the institution came up with a memo showing the time the students should expect power supply, which should not pass mere three hours supply which made the students to protest on Saturday night.
The proposed power supply schedule is supposed to take off by Monday, 3rd of December and UNILAG medical students will be given one hour power supply in the morning and two hours at night.
The students marched round the campus, complaining of an inconducive environment for learning and as the time of this report, CAMPUSBIZ is yet to speak with the authority of the institution to know how the issue escalated.
