University Of Ibadan Bans The Use Of "Hotplates"
Another strike seems to be looming over the Premier University, the University of Ibadan popularly known as UI.

Trouble, according to reports, started during the handing over of the newly elected executives of the Student Union body on May 8, 2017.

The newly elected President of the Student Union, Ojo Aderemi during the ceremony had stated that all females should start using "hotplates" in the kitchenettes and if any body should harass them, they should report to the Union. He said this while the Vuce Chancellor was seated. The Vice Chancellor in return said if students should go on strike, lecturers would still collect salaries.

On Friday May 12, 2017 which is today, the management of the University of Ibadan banned the use of hotplates in every hostel (both male and female). In a statement released, any student caught using it would have to face the Student Disciplinary Committee (SDC).

During the Adewole administration, the use of hotplates was banned only in the female hostels but now it has been banned in both hostels.

The Kingston Dome went around asking students how they feel about the latest development.

Seun (real name withheld) said "this is injustice to all students"

Another student who pleaded anonymity said "I only pray that the Student Union does not embark on a strike that would affect me".

From most student reactions, another strike looms the Ivory Tower.
