Barely 72 hours into a highly publicized students’ event on the campus, Management of University of Lagos (UNILAG) ordered its organizers to delist him as speaker at the event, Focus Naija has exclusively learned.
Mr. Sowore, the founder of Sahara Reporters and convener of the TakeItBack movement was to headline the 2nd August, 2019 event convened by the UNILAG Chapter of the Muslim Students Society (MSS).
Many students and admirers of Mr. Sowore had publicized the events and were brazing to attend.
But a “regrettable correspondence” from the organizers, which was obtained by Focus Naija announced reversal of his invitation.
Focus Naija learnt that UNILAG Management feared that Mr. Sowore’s presence on campus and his speech might instigate the students to rise up in protests against most of Management’s unfair policies, and had decided to immediately intercept his planned presence.
A copy of the correspondence couched to inform Mr. Sowore of his cancelled invitation was obtained by Focus Naija.
