  Prior to the protest,  a Congress was held  at the level of Afrika Amphitheater and resolved  that "no student should attend class(es) until the power supply is restored, and as such, the Students Union Public Relations Officer should go round the halls of residence to inform students of the Resolution of LECTURE BOYCOTT UNTIL POWER SUPPLY IS FULLY AND PERMANENTLY RESTORED.""
