Concern rises over students’ protests

By Nsikan Ikpe

Concern is rising over the recent spate of protests by students in the Nigerian public university system.

Last week, students of the University of Lagos took to the barricades to protest the epileptic power and water supply situation on campus. To avert significant damage, the authorities promptly shut down the school.

The most recent incident this week involves protesting students of the University of Port Harcourt where very sadly one student was reportedly shot dead by the police.

Noted one commentator, ‘seriously, the spate of protests in our universities is worrisome and like typical Nigerian administrations, University managements have failed in finding a creative solution, the next thing is closing down schools. Even at that, the students eventually resume to witness same condition they protested about.’
