Students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) on Thursday boycotted academic activities to protest against the blackout and water scarcity that have plagued the university for few weeks.

The students took to the streets and shut the gates of the school to demand solution to the lack of basic social amenities on the campus.

According to The Press Club, University of Lagos, there has been a price hike of goods on campus due to the exchange rate and this does not leave out Garri, a cassava product.

The water scarcity did not leave out sachet water, as traders now sell only bottled water on campus, which can not be afforded by all.

Students took to various social media platforms to share their grievances.

“So only about an hour of electricity in UNILAG since about 9am,” a student wrote on Twitter.

Another wrote: “UNILAG students have been buying sachet water 2 bathe, No light, No Water, Plenty mosquitoes.”

“There is urgent need for intervention. No light, no water, Times are tough.”

“Exams would soon be here and there would be no light.”

“Unilag should just shut down abeg this struggle is too much. No drinking or running water.”

    This is disappointing actually, no light and water in the “School Of First Choice And The Nation’s Pride”. Most of us dont mind though, we just want to come back to school. Exams are on the way.
