UNN Students Embark On A One Week Sit At Home Protest Over Poor Power Supply
The Student Union Government of the University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC) on Monday directed students of the institution to stay away from lectures to protest the epileptic power supply in the institution.
This is coming as the students prepare for their 2nd semester examination for 2015/2016 session.
It was learnt that as at Monday 6th, June, the lecture halls were under lock with inscriptions “SUG UNEC, No Light, No Lectures, Keep Off!!!” on the doors.
Excerpts of the statement credited to the President of the students union, Emmanuel Ebuka Nwankwo reads, “With exams drawing closer and the seeming continuing non-chalance of the university management the SUG in collaboration with university stakeholders is declaring a one week sit at home protest,” Nwankwo said in the statement.
“We have been quiet for far too long. It is time we take our fate into our hands. There would be no lectures, no exams, no posting, nothing until we get power.”
“This movement begins Monday 6th and it cannot succeed without your help. United we stand, divided we fall. From today onwards our motto is ‘LET THERE BE LIGHT!
