The University of Lagos, UNILAG, has postponed its 50th convocation ceremony for the 2016/2017 academic session.
This was made known to newsmen by the Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe on Tuesday, February 13.
Ogundipe said the that postponement was as a result of the ongoing strike of the non-teaching staff of the university.
He however added that a suitable date for the ceremony would be announced in due course.
”After some deliberations with management, the university has decided to postpone the convocation ceremony.
This is as a result of the challenges posed by the ongoing strike embarked upon by members of the non –academic labour unions of universities, NASU.
“The ceremony was earlier scheduled to hold from Monday, Feb. 19 to Thursday, Feb. 22.
“The activities of these unions have the potential of snowballing and marring the carefully laid out arrangements already put in place for the ceremony,’’ the VC said.
