Students Kick As Osinbajo Visits OAU For Convocation by BeautifulMind2: 6:46am On Dec 04
Students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife on Monday expressed their reservations against the planned visit of the Nigerian Vice -president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo into the campus to attend the 43rd combined convocation of the university holding next week.
Students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife on Monday expressed their reservations against the planned visit of the Nigerian Vice -president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo into the campus to attend the 43rd combined convocation of the university holding next week.
The students, through their representative, Gbenga Ololoniran, who is the Protem Chairman, Students’ Union Action Committee, described the planned visit as an aberration, saying the Vice-president had been part of problem confronting Nigerian universities.

He said the APC led administration’s policy on education was totally anti-poor, which tends towards making it difficult for the children of average Nigerian to access qualitative education and become well informed to challenge the old political order.


He noted that the struggle against this abysmal situation in the education sector and the citadel in particular had led to victimisation and repression of students’ activists and proscription of students’ movement.
“At this period where the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been on strike across universities, including OAU, over the rotten state of university education, it is still a shock to us that the only solution provided by the government is for tertiary students to begin to pay N700,000 as tuition fee per session.

“We, therefore, see the presence of such anti-student figure of the government in an academic arena to be a guest speaker, as a rape of our collective intelligence in a university where students’ academic activities are currently battered by the nationwide industrial action of ASUU.
We make bold to assert that Prof. Osinbajo is not welcome on OAU campus”, Ololoniran said.
He, therefore, called on the Federal Government to retrace it’s steps and work towards adequate funding of education by committing at least 26 per cent of the country’s budget as against the paltry seven per cent to the education sector.

In a swift reaction, the Public Relations Officer of the Institution, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju described the threat expressed by the students’ leader as personal opinion of Ololoniran, saying” in fact, the OAU Community, particularly the students, are eagerly waiting for a day when either President Muhammadu Buhari or Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, or both of them, will come to OAU on a visit.

“The community is ready to give a rousing welcome to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria and renowned Professor of law whose brilliant performance in the present administration has done the academic community proud,” he added.

Good reasons but then it is a political season and I expect the leadership of the students to seek to cash in from it.

Press Release: OAU Welcome Osinbajo, Honours Jeyifo

03 December 2018 | Written by OAU. Published in Events

The attention of the authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, has been drawn to a release written by a supposed student of the University, expressing a personal opinion that the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, was not welcome in OAU.

A release by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Abiodun Olarewaju, stated emphatically that the Council, Management, Senate, Staff, STUDENTS, and the entire Community of OAU hold the office of Vice President and the person of Professor Yemi Osinbajo in highest esteem and shall never hesitate to continue in that manner.

In fact, the OAU Community, particularly the Students, are eagerly waiting for a day when either President Muhammadu Buhari or Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, or both of them, will come to OAU on a visit. The community is ready to give a rousing welcome to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria and renowned Professor of law whose brilliant performance in the present administration has done the academic community proud.

We hereby advise the general public to disregard, in it's entirety, the release by anybody which runs contrary to the motto of the university: For Learning and Culture.

We want to use this medium to reassure the student that the present University academic calendar is on course and remains sacrosanct.

Meanwhile, the University, as approved by its Senate, has decided to award an Honorary Degree to a very distinguished Nigerian academic and radical intellectual activist, Professor Biodun Jeyifo, English Professor Emeritus at Cornell University and, currently, Professor of African and African and American Studies and of Comparative Literature at Harvard University, in the United States of America (USA) during its 43rd combined convocations.

Students through their representative says Osinbajo should stay away from the school premises that; his presence his not needed for the convocation "They gave valid reasons for their out burst"

School via public relation officer countered the students that; the students representative is saying his personal opinion.

To be sincere among the Duo, who is making more sense?

Ultimately he's still the Vice President, and by many accounts, an honourable man.

That is OAU for you. I am an alumnus so, I know better. Exactly four years ago, Goodluck Jonathan was in OAU and he was shamed with protests. Great Ife students are wired to recognise good leaders and shame nonperforming ones in a non-partisan way.
