The Lagos State University Students' Union (LASUSU) in bid to honour Lt. Chief M.K.O Abiola and Lt. Comrade Tunde Salau, a programme tagged: “Freedom Icons: Celebrating Chief M.K.O. Abiola and Tunde Salau” featuring two topics which are “Democracy in Nigeria and impact of June 12” and “The legend of Tunde Salau” was held to meet with the demand of the community and in respect of the national calendar.

Just twelve days after the University Senate reinstated the Students' Union (LASUSU), after they were suspended for struggling to reverse the outrageous fee hike, the same union celebrates the Late Chief M.K.O. Abiola, icon of Nigeria democracy to celebrate June 12 and Tunde Salau, an hero in the history of LASUSU.

Comrade Abiodun Aremu, who is the prominent guest speaker for the programme took the students through the history of ”June 12” phenomenon and how its celebration began. He said June 12 is a reflection of struggle of Nigerian people.

Aremu, made emphasis, recommending that LASU should include some of Fela's music to her varsity's General Studies (GNS) curriculum, as it contains things the current generation should know. Comrade Aremu criticize the recent fee hike and argues that banning of the students' union is no justifiable.

Speaking on “the Legend of Tunde Salau”, Comrade Wale Oshineye (popularly called 'SP') , LASUSU parliamentary speaker 07/08 session, spoke elaborately on Tunde Salau, first son of his parents and his ever articulate fight against cultism until he was murdered.

Other notable human right activists at the occasion include; Daggatolai, Dr Dele Seteolu, Comrade Ajayi amongst other comrades.
