OAU Agricultural Students Embark On Lecture Boycott
Sequel to the congressional decision of the general students of the great faculty of Agriculture of Obafemi Awolowo University chapter last week, students in the Faculty of Agriculture made their grievances known to the management through a lecture boycott to protest the condition of their dilapidated lecture theatres and laboratory through a peaceful solidarity movement.
It was almost a hullabaloo when the National Association of Agricultural Students (NAAS) executives led by the president of the association drove the students out of the lecture room to converge at the Agric-Foyer. The president moved the motion to boycott the lecture as he sought the indulgence of the students to come out en-masse for the peaceful solidarity movement. The motion was eventually accepted by the assemblage which was followed by the mass movement of the students.
The president of the agricultural students however gave the management an ultimatum of 72 hours to respond to their request to renovate and make Ajose Lecture Theatre available for use by their students.
