#LifeInUnilag: Life goes on in Unilag despite nationwide strike

Despite a directive by the national leadership of ASUU that all branches of the union should join the strike to protest the removal of petrol subsidy, all went on as usual at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) yesterday.

Students were seen writing their first semester examination for the 2015/2016 academic session which started last week.

Supervisors where seen at the exam centre conducting the examination without any disturbance.

Those who had no papers were seen reading in the various parts of the campus.

A postgraduate student, Yinka Adekunle, said they had thought the strike would affect the ongoing examination.

“We thought the strike was going to affect our exams today; but we got to school only to find that there was no strike and exams continued,” he said.

Efforts to speak to ASUU chairman proved abortive as he was unavailable and did not return calls or a text message made to his phone.
