OAU Students Suspend Protest, Give Room For Negotiation With The Management

Following today's massive demonstration of Obafemi Awolowo University students that led to the total shutdown of activities on the campus, the students have decided to suspend the protest to allow for negotiation with the university management on their demands.

In a congress held in the midst of the protest today at the campus gate, it was unanimously agreed that the Union leaders should honour any subsequent meeting invitation letter even as they permit normalcy to return to campus tomorrow.

The Students' Union leadership failed to honour the initial meeting the Management invited them to on Sunday on the grounds that their attendance at the meeting with the University Administration would be a betrayal of their cause and frustrate their already planned lecture boycott and protest. The Students' Union Executive stated further that their attendance at the meeting would put a big question mark on the integrity of the leadership of the Union and as such the planned lecture boycott and protest are not negotiable based on congressional resolution.

As at Press time, the Public Relations Officer of the Students' Union, Ojedokun Emmanuel a.k.a Immanuel Kant has confirmed to our correspondent that the Union leadership is yet to receive another invitation letter from the University administration.
