University Of Ibadan Lifts Ban On Students’ Union Government

The University of Ibadan (UNIBADAN) has lifted the ban on the activities of its Students’ Union Government (SUG) after a decision reached by the institution’s Senate.

In the Senate meeting held on Friday, August 30 2019, the Dean of Students Affairs, Prof. I. A. Abiona, made a passionate appeal for the ban to be lifted so as to allow for the conduct of elections of the SUG during the 2018/2019 session.

This decision came 2 years after it was imposed. Recall that in 2017, UNIBADAN suspended the activities of the Students’ Union Government after a protest made over the delay in the issuance of digitised identity cards (ID card).

In the proposal to lift the suspension, Abiona stated;

“140 persons were tried in connection with the protest by the students’ disciplinary committee with some receiving sanctions while others were acquitted.”

“The Student Affairs Division will ensure that a purposeful leadership of students emerges by raising the bar of eligibility, organisation of pre-election workshop and post-election leadership retreat for winners,” he assured.
