Exactly three weeks after the institution was shut over students’ protest, the management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, has announced Monday, May 2, as the resumption date for academic activities.

This is even as the university has also announced the dissolution of the students’ union executive council and the legislative council, insisting that the faculty and departmental students’ associations will, henceforth, be working with the students’ affairs division to attend to students’ welfare.

This was the outcome of an emergency meeting of the university’s Senate, which considered the report of the investigative panel on the protest by the students, and the recommendations of the committee of provosts and deans on the matter.

In a statement issued Friday by the university and signed by the Registrar and Secretary to the Senate and the Council, Dr. Mrs. Taiwo Ipaye, the first semester examination in the ongoing 2015/2016 academic session of the institution has been scheduled to commence on Monday, May 9.

The statement added that returning students must sign an undertaking to be of good behaviour, and must be properly endorsed by their parents or guardians.
