|Naming Ceremony Of OAU’s Controversial Baby With Pic. by Kenny4lyfe(m): 9:12pm On Jul 03, 2013|
BY Kemi Busari, OAU
What started like a mystery turned out to be a
celebration as the students of Obafemi Awolowo
University christened the ‘Moremi Baby’ on the eighth
The baby was given the following names; Moremibiyi,
(Moremi gave birth to this), Morounmoboni University (I
came back with something worthy from the University),
Awobola (Awo gave birth to wealth), EsinIdanwoleyi
(This is the result of examination) a.k.a, Special
Elective with a matric number; MOR/2013/001. The first
student to be admitted for the session’
Rotimi and her baby
It will be recalled that on the 19th day of June 2013,
Oyinlola Rotimi of the Faculty of Agriculture, Obafemi
Awolowo University was alleged to have attempted
flushing her new-born baby boy down the toilet, which
she had since denied.
This generated issues in the school as students were
divided on whether to believe the undergraduate
mother or not. However, events took a new turn on the
eighth day of the incident as students regardless of
their stand on the issue, came out in their numbers to
rejoice with the new baby during the naming ceremony
held at the Moremi Hall where he was given birth to.
The procession started at Awo Café of the Awolowo
Hall where many students were reading in preparation
for their examination, many students were seen
packing their books in order not to miss the fun.
The master of ceremony, a student, called upon a
pastor, an imam and an oluwo to pray for the child. A
student called Professor, acted as the baby’s uncle and
another student mimicked Prof. Omole (the Vice-
Chancellor of the institution).
The crowd was caught in an uncontrollable round of
laughter and shouting when the Awo choir was called
upon to perform before the tumultuous crowd.
In his sermon before the naming, the Islamic cleric,
Alfa, took his time to advise the other female
occupants of the hall and female students generally
and warned them to be more cautious with the way
they deal with ‘emotional struggle’ on campus.
