UI students launch petition over academic stagnancy

A petition launched by Some students of the university of Ibadan against the school has been making waves on WhatsApp and other social media platforms. The petition which was created around midday, 8th of January 2020 is aimed at calling out the university to act on resumption of academic activities after 10 months of closure.

Recall that the premier university is yet to conclude 2018/2019 academic session which Commenced in June 2019 and this has made student tired and frustrated.

“I gained admission since 2018, this is 2021 and I’m yet to conclude 100 level” one of the aggrieved students commented on one of the Students’ groups. “2019: 200 level, 2020:200 level, 2021: 200 level, when are we going to graduate?” Another replied.

Although, sources close to the school including the Students’Union representatives have tried to calm students during the week, students are tired of the silent treatment from the school.

It should be noted that the university of Ibadan Commenced second semester, 2018/2019 session on 28th of October 2019 and is yet to conclude the semester due to Incessant ASUU strike and COVID-19. Perhaps, the first thing UI teaches you is patience so, I’m expecting 2 certificate; one in my discipline and the other, in patience 😂
