Following the Parliamentary sitting which was slated for 4pm today, the suspended Students' Union President of Obafemi Awolowo University, Omotayo Akande a.k.a TY has been reinstated.

TY had earlier appealed his suspension claiming that suspending him was too severe a punishment for his breach of constitutional protocol. A motion was moved in support of his reinstatement and a counter-motion was also moved against it by honourables present at the sitting. The motion in support was that he, the president should be reinstated immediately if he apologizes while the counter-motion maintained that he should complete his one-month suspension.

The motions were therefore subjected to voting. 49 parliamentarians voted that TY be reinstated while another 6 voted that he should remain suspended. Subsequently, TY was pronounced reinstated as the Union president once again.

It will be recalled that Akande Omotayo was involved in a New York trip scandal that led to his suspension two weeks ago. He has since then been suspended as his Vice, Oladunjoye Opeyemi a.k.a Oprah assumed as the President. During the period Oprah acted as the president, she complained of non-cooperation from some of the Union Officers and Union members especially the yet to be approved Security Committee members.
