Log out week or sign out day as the case may be in different higher institutions in Nigeria is a week or a day filled with different activities dedicated to final year students to celebrate the successful completion of years spent in getting their degree.
If we can recall that a total ban was placed on sign out activities by the Management committee on the 24th of March, 2021 after Class 19 log out activities due to some misconduct. Class 20 students organized a plea walk pleading with the management to give them a day for a peaceful sign out on 11th November, 2021 which proved abortive because the school was reiterated that the total ban of log out activities in LAUTECH is irrevocable.
However, every departments of the graduating Class 20 Students has since last week engaged in signing out against the management’s decision of a total ban after the completion of the 2020/2021 rain semester examinations.
The Dean of Student Affairs, Prof. A.O Ige has stated in a mail sent to all students this evening that erring students involved in any form of unruly attitudes such as forming crowd, making noise, reckless driving within the University environment under the pretense of celebration thereby breaching the peace of the University will be dealt with accordingly.
“The use of convoy was totally unnecessary. If we had gone about it in a coded way with just signing on our shirts and going somewhere outside the school to celebrate, the school might not even be bothered by us but driving the cars round the school and making noise thereby disturbing other students writing exams was uncalled for. One of our guys even got injured because he hit a car and hit his head on the steering wheel which caused him bleeding in his nose. All of these was what caused the ban initially and we still did the same. We should have done better” stated Adekola, a final year student of the Faculty of Engineering.
