Michael,is the convener of Youth In Good Governance Initiative (YIGGI) and a secretary in Ogun State African Action Congress (AAC) recently made the headlines as he received a letter of expulsion for criticising the university authorities in an open letter addressed to the Vice Chancellor of the school.
In an interview with The Cable Lifestyle on Monday,Michael described his expulsion as “collective slaps on the face of Nigerian students and an infringement on his rights”.
He said he only wrote the letter to bring the school’s attention to lingering issues affecting the students and not to fight the powers that be as the school interpreted it.
According to him,the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) and the Student Union Government (SUG) in FUNAAB has moved a motion to speak with the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Felix Salako on his behalf but he is scared that it may not yield the desired outcome:positive.

However,FUNAAB registrar,Bola Adekola confirmed Ifemosu’s expulsion.
