Ogunbodede made this known on Monday at the biennial conference of the African Institute for Science Policy and Innovation held at OAU.

The vice-chancellor said the project, which started in 2017, would be ready by the end of October.

He added that the institution was working with a rural electrification agency that would provide a gas-powered turbine that would generate 8.0 megawatts of electricity for the institution.

“Because of the fast pace of the work, the project will be delivered by October ending.

By NAN and THE NATION




Justice P.I. Ajoku of the Federal High Court in Ibadan has granted the prayer of the NYSC to bring in Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) as a joinder in a suit instituted by the immediate past Communication Minister, Mr. Adebayo Shittu, against the corps. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Shittu had in December 2018 told the court that the NYSC was basically responsible for why he did not participate in the compulsory one year service after his graduation. The former minister was a graduate of the then University of Ife, now OAU. Shittu, through his counsel, Mr. Muktar Aderogba, had informed the court that the NYSC did not issue him a call up letter which was mandatory for any higher institution graduate. The defence counsel, Mr O.B. Omuru, had tendered an application seeking to have OAU as a joinder since it was the institution where Shittu graduated from. At the resumption of hearing on Tuesday, Ajoku who cited many sections of the law to support her …

Oduduwa University Disowns Suspected Cultists Arrested In OAU At Zlatan"s Show

The founder of Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu, Dr Abdulrahman Adegoke Adedoyin, has denied the claim that students of the institution were planning to attack the neighbouring Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, describing it as ridiculous.

Adedoyin said: “The management of the Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu, via Ile Ife is shocked by the claims that our students plan to attack Obafemi Awolowo University, Ife, Osun State (OAU). This claim to say the least is embarrassing, ridiculous and false.

“We make bold to say that those students arrested as cultists in OAU were neither our students nor had any link with OUI. We have gone through the institution’s portal and our records and could not trace their names.

“In view of this, there is no basis to spew publication or harbour any thought that our students are hatching plans to attack Obafemi Awolowo University.”

The educationist went on: “Why is OAU linking us with the challenges it is currently battling with? How can a student/staff populat…
