Sixteen years ago, Lanre Akinola completed academic requirements to receive a degree in statistics from the University of Ilorin. But Akinola had taken on extracurricular activities: protesting against military dictatorship and filthy dorms.
“Conditions have only changed for the worse,” said Hassan Taiwo Soweto, national coordinator with the local Education Rights Campaign. He pointed to a recent protest at the University of Lagos, where students complained mattresses are infested with bed bugs and toilets are stopped up.
“It was a struggle. I got by with help from family and friends,” he said.
