Accordingly, no political group shall assemble or hold meetings or engage in any political related activities on any of the university campuses during this period of suspension.
He maintained that the suspension affects political solidarity marches, political gatherings, the wearing of symbols and emblems depicting and promoting campus based political groups, student protest among others.
He suspended that at the same time, the UL administration condemns in the strongest possible terms the violent disturbances that erupted on the UL campus on Monday, March 13, 2023 and by extension all such incidents.
Meanwhile, the UL Administration commissions an immediate independent investigation to probe the Monday disturbances, which led to the cancellation of classes and injuries to students and others.
