Prior to the directives of FG, on the 15th of October, 2020, OAU Staff sets to resume for work on Monday. The Federal Government directed civil servants who have not been working since March because of the COVID-19 pandemic to return to work on Monday, 19th October 2020.  This was disclosed by Boss Mustapha; the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and Sanni Aiyu; the National Coordinator at a press briefing of the task force on Thursday ,15th October 2020.

The acting Secretary of the committee, Abiodun Idis a.k.a Banjris who confirmed to us that the SU president is aware of the meeting and he called him this morning to go and attend the meeting since the committee is in charge of handing over. He said he does not why TY himself was not present in person.

OAU SU Excos' Absence Forestalled Handing Over Of Union Properties

The Division of Student Affairs (DSA), Obafemi Awolowo University facilitated handing over event of all Union projects, properties and account by the Ibikunle-led administration to the TY-led current tenure suffered set-back as a result of the absence of the current Students’ Union executives’ absence.
The meeting that was supposed to start 2:00pm did not begin until some few minutes to 3pm when the acting Dean, Division of Student Affairs, Dr (Mrs) L. M. Durosinmi arrived with her aides to the venue that was obviously set for the event.

Dr (Mrs) L. M. Durosinmi recognized the presence of the past Students’ Union executives, Electoral Commission chairman, the Probe Committee members, SRC members, Judicial Council members and the Pressmen present.

The absence of the members of the Students’ Union Central Executive Council (CEC) served as a major barrier for the proper transfer as they were not on ground to receive what the outgoing Union Officers brought.

Controversy initially ensued…

ACJ Breaks Silence Over Hon.Seun, Ibiyemi Battle For Legitimacy

The recent Press Statement of the Association of Campus Journalists has not only addressed the attacks on their members but it has also relayed to the Great Ife community her view on the Hon. Seun versus Ibiyemi issue.
The release reads in part:

We cannot put out the blazing fire of our pen’s ballpoint without putting ink to paper on invariably, currently, the most controversial debacle in the Student Union and extensively on this campus – the tussle for power, right to office; and the sudden as well as mysterious interpretations of the OAU SU Constitution.

It yet remains a hot matter as to who is the rightful leader between both parties since no other activity has questioned Ibiyemi’s independence and self-declaration as the Secretary General of the Union and Hon Seun’s Congress-staked approval as the Secretary General of the same Union!

Although this sudden turn of events has caught us not unawares but has surprisingly unsettled our intel…

Campus Journalists in Obafemi Awolowo University under the aegis of Association of Campus Journalists (ACJ) met with the OAU Students’ Union Public Relations Officer, Ojedokun Emmanuel a.k.a Immanuel Kant over attack on media practitioners on campus.
In a report centralized by the ACJ which reflects on the totality of the discussions that held during the meeting, a host of questions begging answers since the assumption of office of the Central Executive Council of the Students’ Union were presented to the Union through the PRO, Mr Ojedokun Emmanuel.

Some of the questions read thus:
 Was it not ACJ that stood as a representative of the entire student body to monitor the activities of the then Electoral Commission as well as work with them to ensure a free and fair election as we have always been known to do?
 What crimes have campus journalists committed to provoke such treatments?
 And why should individuals who work tirelessly and impartially without a demand for remuneration from …

Vacate Office Of Secretary General, Campus Connect Initiative Tells Hon. Seun

The Campus Connect Initiative (CCI), Obafemi Awolowo University branch has late last week demanded that the congress-reinstated Secretary General of Great Ife Students’ Union, Oketooto Oluwaseun a.k.a Hon. Seun should vacate seat in line with the Tribunal declaration.
In a press conference organized by the Initiative, the leaders argued that the Tribunal maintaining its fairness having been persuaded by evidence presented before it gave a magnanimous decision sacking the 'elected' Secretary General from acting as the Secretary General of the Union for Electoral Fraud and lack of the required 2.5 CGPA and as such, the decision should be respected.

The SU President in person of Omotayo Akande a.k.a TY was also berated for not respecting a judicial order but rather resolving to use a congress to pervert the decision of the Tribunal in favour of Hon. Seun.

“In order to pervert Justice, the President in the person of Omotayo Akande called a Congress of Great Ife students’, a body a…
