Contained in the circular issued by the University and signed by the Registrar, D. O. Awoyemi, the Management stated that teaching and academic instructions are core activities of the University and as such should not be disrupted under any guise.
"It has come to the notice of the University authorities that some students are in the habit of disrupting lectures under the guise of making announcement to fellow students while lecturers are giving lectures.
"It must be emphasized that teaching and academic instructions are core activities of the University and are therefore sacrosanct in the University. Disruption of this core academic activity is therefore an ugly and an unwholesome aberation that must stop forthwith.
"Accordingly, students are hereby reminded that disruption of lectures under any guise for the purpose of making announcements by any group of students or on behalf of any association, group, union, club or society or whatever nature is serious misconduct and shall be punished according to the University's regulations."
