Students' Union Leaders Speak On Outage of Power And Water Supply


With due civility and veneration, I salute the courage, the doggedness, especially the perseverance and maturity Great Ife students displayed throughout the period in which the university community was devoid of supply of power and water supply became a race up and down the hills. Following actions and reactions that trailed the period, it is considered exigent that a detailed report be given for the sake of proper information.

The ugly situation the university community found itself since Tuesday, 16th of September, 2014, was as a result of a national grid fault at Oshogbo distribution plant. The fault led to outage of power at Oshogbo, Ife, Ilesha and Ondo which definitely did not exclude OAU campus. As at Tuesday, the welfare officer of the Union, Ojogbon, inquired from various concerned offices on campus to know the cause of the outage and the above rea…

Ibikunle, Bamidele Accused Of Beating Up A Fresher

Thursday evening at Awolowo Hall in Oba Awon University could be described as one of the most action packed night in this semester as Bamidele was on the verge of been paraded and served ‘maximum shishi’ by Awoite for allegedly slapping a student.

It all started Thursday evening when Ibikunle and some other members of the CEC, SU came to Awolowo Hall as usual to make announcement. Awo boys in what looks like accumulated frustration and anger over the 5 days power blackout and epileptic water supply refused to listen to the Union president and boo him as he continually tried to speak. No sooner, many Awo boys who were upstairs before came down and got into hot arguement with Ibikunle and other Union leaders. Suddenly, there was an uproar and clamour from one end of the clustered students that Bamidele, the SU PRO slapped someone. Immediately, many Awoites who were already angry started to shout and intensely call for Bamidele trial at the level of Awolowo Cafe for allegedly slapping …

Microsoft Student Essay Contest: Cyberspace 2025

Cybersecurity is a policy priority for many governments, yet there is limited understanding of how policy choices made today will impact a country’s cyberspace tomorrow. The growth in cyberspace predicted in the next decade is driven and shaped by a number of external factors, many of which can be amplified or influenced by public policy choices.

Successful policies must balance enabling innovation and advancing cybersecurity.
