“Nobody, has the right to dissolve the Union, because it is not a cube of sugar.” – UNIBADAN SUG President

Ojo Aderemi, the President of the now suspended Student Union of the University of Ibadan

Ojo Aderemi, the Student Union president of the University of Ibadan has said that nobody has the right to ban the union.

The Student Union was banned as a result of a peaceful protest by the
students asking for basic demands from the school authorities

Ojo believes there are no real grounds to postpone
school activities or even ban the Union. His colleagues, according to
him, have no history of vandalism.
In his own words:
“University of Ibadan students are not known for
hooliganism. We’re not known for vandalism. Check out history. We’ve
always been peaceful students. We don’t vandalise property. We’re
intellectuals. 
 And to the legal part. He believes the University has no constitutional right to ban them from having a student union.
And while he was at it, he didn’t forget to throw in some shade:
“According to the sacrosanct constitution of the
Federal Republic of Nigeria, we have the right to associate, assemble.
And no individual, nobody, has the right to dissolve the Union, because
it is not a cube of sugar.”
Speaking with the press, and surrounded by students,
he said they simply chose Democracy Day to come out and state their
grievances.

He said:

“We had a general meeting of the Student Union,
and it was resolved that students should embark on a peaceful
demonstration on Democracy Day.”

 

“The reason being that for three semesters on the
campus, students have paid for their ID cards, but they haven’t
received them. Apart from that, according to our student information
handbook, we have the right to use hot plates in our kitchennettes.
There’s high level of victimisation, stifling freedom of information and
expression.”
Meanwhile the school authority has postponed
exams till the 17th of July, and there’s still a strict ban on protests
by the Oyo State Commissioner of Police.
