Students of the Lagos State University (LASU) have been advised to vote wisely and shun electoral violence in the forthcoming general elections.
Shun election violence, don’t vote for 'stomach infrastructure', LASU VC urges students
LASU VC, Obafunwa, has advised students of the institution to make informed choices as they approach the polls and refuse to be swayed by 'stomach infrastructure’ incentives.
The Vice-Chancellor of LASU, Prof. John Obafunwa, gave the advice on Thursday, in the institution’s bulletin.
Obafunwa, said students should make informed decisions as they approach the polls and refuse to be swayed by 'stomach infrastructure’ incentives.
“Students should evaluate, decide and their choices should not be based on stomach infrastructure," he said.
The VC told the students to be wary of electoral violence as they perform their civic duties.
"Perform your civic duties and stay away from violence.
“Do not allow anyone to use you to foment trouble as there is life after the university,’’ the bulletin quoted the VC as saying."
Obafunwa also reminded the students of the need to maintain stability in the institution for the overall benefit of all.
“Peaceful environment will help the university to achieve a lot in the area of academics, convocation and National Youth Service for our students," the VC said.
“Dialogue is better in resolving issues than locking down the university."
It will be recalled that Obafunwa and the leadership of the institution’s Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have been in a long-drawn battle that has seen accusations and counter-accusations from both camps.
