"JUNE 1 AND ITS TAKEAWAY" - LOLU AKINTEYE

Dark ashes flying into the warm levels of the sky, silence eroding the streets of Angola hall to PG college. Thriller cries whispering into our ears sorrowfully as though we could hear the voice of that boy in his Kampala dress with his aluta fist held and raised up to the heavenlies.
The blood of the innocent painting the walls of Fajuyi Hall and the play grounds of Awolowo hall. The vision of the massacre!

Perhaps,  the most emotional  and spirited day on OAU campus is always the July 10 remembrance.

The scary times are when histories that beckon sorrow, shame, regrets and hatred tend to repeat themselves  not as fairy tales, not as narratives but as occurrences for the ears to hear and the eyes to see.

I had just gotten back from one of those clinical postings when my former roommate and classmate messaged me on account of the recent happenings that had happened while I had been offline for days. He sent me the popular screenshot that I later realized has been flying around of a p…

The parliamentary house of the Technology and Engineering Students" Association (TESA) OAU has impeached Miracle Owolabi as the president of the association on  at a parliamentary sitting held on Thursday April 18,2018.
  OAU Peeps News Agency learnt that before his impeachment, the president had been on an indefinite suspension since November 18 2018 for some gross misconduct.

Investigation conducted by OAU peeps news agency revealed that his suspension which lasted for over 5 months was initially triggered by the  ratification of one Bukunmi, an 100 level school of nursing student located outside Osun state which he brought into the local organisation committee (LOC) to plan a conference that was to be organised by the association.

However his reinstatement lingered as further investigations revealed cases of  "gross misconduct" and his involvement in series of unconstitutional actions which were discovered during the period of his suspension.

Before We Accept “The Proposal”

By 'Joba Ojelabi



“Logistics”; the most probable reason when a Nigerian event doesn’t start on time. So much that any experienced Master of Ceremony knows that the first thing to do at an event is to apologize for “starting behind schedule” and if the MC is euphemistic enough, the cause would be “logistics” or in other words, “reasons beyond their control” which leaves any rational mind wondering how feasible this is. How does the organizer of an event in a continent not known so much for natural disasters claim that the organization of an event simply went beyond their control? And this phenomenon becomes so recurrent that it gets it own name; “the African time”. Luckily, Falz, Dike Chukwumerije and the Simply Poetry team has shown us that artists and organisers of Shows can actually be true to time; that if a show is slated for 4:00pm, it can actually start by 4:00pm. Sadly, this was the first failure of Joshua Peter’s “The Proposal”. The first show was slated for 4:00pm but woul…

Allegation Of Dam Poisoning By The OAU Management Is A Lie-- Ooni of Ife

Image
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has described the claim by the management of Obafemi Awolowo University over dam poisoning as unfounded.

The university management of the institution earlier alleged that the indigenes of Ife had poisoned the dam that supplies water to the institution over land dispute.

It was reported that some armed hoodlums who are claiming ownership of some portions of the university land poured poisonous chemicals in the dam which killed all the fishes and aquatic animals there.

 However, the monarch has denied the claim saying it is illogical for his people to poison themselves because a large number of the members of OAU community are indigenes of Ile-Ife.

Speaking through his spokesperson, Moses Olafare, the Ooni of Ife said he was surprised that a university could make such a claim.

“How can Ife poison their own people? Either as students, staffers, shop owners or investors, the residents of OAU include more Ile-Ife indigenes than anywhere else. S…
