HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST AND SENIOR ADVOCATE OF NIGERIA, FEMI FALANA, ON FRIDAY CALLED FOR AN IMMEDIATE LIFTING OF THE BAN ON STUDENTS UNIONS IN ALL NIGERIA UNIVERSITIES.

FALANA SAID THIS WHILE DELIVERING THE NINTH CONVOCATION LECTURE OF CALEB UNIVERSITY, IMOTA, LAGOS, TITLED “MANAGING FREEDOM AND ILLUSIONS OF ACHIEVEMENT.”

HE LAMENTED THAT INSTEAD OF PRODUCING CRITICAL THINKERS, OUR UNIVERSITIES HAVE SPECIALISED IN PRODUCING ROBOTS, AS THE LACK OF STUDENT UNIONISM IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE UNIVERSITIES WAS BREEDING GRADUATES WITHOUT A MIND OF THEIR OWN.

THE LEGAL LUMINARY NOTED THAT STUDENTS AND STAFF UNIONS WOULD CONTRIBUTE MEANINGFULLY TO THE SEARCH FOR SOLUTIONS TO THE MYRIAD OF PROBLEMS CONFRONTING THE COUNTRY IF THEY ARE ALLOWED TO OPERATE WITHOUT FEAR OF PROSCRIPTION.
