University of Ibadan rusticates SUG president for four semesters


The University of Ibadan (UI) has rusticated Ojo Aderemi, the last known President of the Students Union Government (SUG) for four semesters.

The decision was sealed at Wednesday’s sitting of the Student Disciplinary Committee (SDC), where the letters were handed over to him.

Ojo, a 300L student of the Department of History, Faculty of Arts, was accused of conducting an illegal congress of the union, leading a protest and breaking the glass of an office while a lecturer was inside – allegations that were denied by Ojo.

Ojo was elected President of UI’s SUG on April 29, 2019, and was sworn in on May 8. The protest happened on May 29 and the union was suspended on May 30, meaning he only lasted three weeks and a day in office.
