Due to the lingering NASU strike that started on the 4th of December, the students of the University of Lagos have become the victims as hostels are now in total blackout.
Students in the hostels are said to have been sleeping in darkness since Monday, 5th February, when the union renewed their agitation.
There has been complaints that the union supplies power to the school from 5pm to 9am, but not to hostels.
In the University Of Ibadan, the situation is quite different. There is a daytime blackout, and students are forced to carry out their activities at night when power is restored.
Damilola, a 400 level student of Guidance and Counselling said she feels because of the NASU strike, they could not complete their curriculum and they had to buy textbooks to supplement their reading for exams.
At some point there wasn’t water in hostels, especially the female hostels and they started getting skeptical about where cafeterias were getting water from.
