Unilag postpones convocation ceremony

The University of Lagos has postponed its convocation ceremony for the 2016/2017 academic session, saying a suitable date for the ceremony would be announced later.

The ceremony was earlier scheduled to hold from Monday, February 19 to Thursday February 22.

The university said the postponement was as a result of the challenges posed by the on-going strike embarked upon by members of the non –academic labour unions of universities.

Members of the unions, the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, the Non Academic Staff Union and the National Association of Academic Technologists embarked on strike on December 4, 2017.

The unions, under the aegis of the Joint Actions Committee, were protesting among other issues, the non-implementation of agreement they entered into with the Federal government in 2009.

They were also protesting the sharing formula of the N23 billion released by the Federal government as part of earned allowance of workers of federal universities across the country.
