Former President of the University of Ibadan Students’ Union (UISU), Ojo Aderemi, has resumed back to school after serving his four-semester suspension.
Ojo, who was the President of the Union in 2017, was, alongside other union leaders, suspended by the Students Disciplinary committee in 2019 after he led a protest tagged “No ID card, No Exam.”
The suspension of Ojo Aderemi was met with opposition from civic groups and student organizations, but calls for his reinstatement were not obliged.
Meanwhile, Aderemi confirmed that he has resumed the 2021/2022 session.
“The suspension commenced on April 12, 2019, and was to last for 4 semesters lasting through 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 sessions. It ended in the second semester of 2020/2021. I resumed in this first semester of the 2021/2022 session,” Ojo said.
He also said he will be addressing the public on the issue soon.
Applauding the perseverance of the reinstated student during the travail, Asiwaju Babatimehin, a student activist, said Ojo’s sacrifice for demanding justice is significant and will be appreciated by generations to come.
“It is good to have Ojo back on campus and I commend his perseverance. We should not relent in pursuance of a sane society,” he said.
