He said the reason he cannot continue to work with the appointed CSO, Seyi is because he does not know him to the extent of trusting him.

Life On Campus With MizDee- Privacy 2

This edition is mainly to share with you what people especially Alumni Hall occupants think about ‘privacy in Alumni hall’. While I went around gathering people’s opinions concerning ‘the tying of curtains in Alumni Hall’, a few people questioned me: Is this for your research work? Well, I am considering it as a research problem but under what discipline will that fall? (Laughs)
Here are some people’s opinion as to the tying of curtains in Alumni Hall.
‘I feel it has more disadvantages than advantages. Take for example, a laptop was stolen in a particular room and the roommates were around but they did not know when a non-occupant of the room probably walked in and picked the laptop because curtains were down. The only advantage I can think of is maybe a little PRIVACY. There are more disadvantages though.’ -Ajibade Fadekemi, Alumni hall chairperson.
‘The use of curtains has more advantages. To me, it keeps out too much ray of light.’ -Cinderella.
‘The use of curtains help to appreciate i…

Do You Know OAU Hosts The 8th Architectural Wonder Of The World?

A recent post obvious on the OAU website ( reads "Visit the 8th Architectural wonder of the world". I was so much surprised to know Obafemi Awolowo University hosts this architectural wonder in such rank as claimed by the institution.

Looking at the structure critically, it seems to be an architectural wonder but is it really the 8th in the world?

The management of the Natural History Museum, OAU now charges N500 for individual who wishes to snap within the premises of the museum and N2,000 for group picture.

Student charges are N100 per head while that of Adult are N200 per head.

Senators, Reps Want SAN Title

Senators, House of Representatives members and members of other legislative houses in the country who are lawyers, on Monday intensified their clamour to be conferred with the prestigious rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria.

The clamour also covers all lawyers working in legislative houses in various capacities.

Besides claiming that they worked harder than judicial officers, the lawmakers argued that regular lawyers and other legal practitioners were not better qualified for the rank than the legislators.

The members pressed for the recognition during the inaugural meeting of “The Forum of Lawyers in the Nigerian Legislature,” held at the National Assembly in Abuja.

Convener of the forum, Senator Ita Enang, while speaking for the group, said since the lawyers in the legislature participated in passing all the laws used for legal practice in the country, they were qualified for the rank of SAN.

Enang, a former Chairman, Senate Committee on Rules and Business, stated that it was an “insult” …
