OAU SUB TV Room Set To Wear A New Look

By David Adetula

The Students' Union Building TV room of Obafemi Awolowo University is set to wear a new look as massive renovation work is ongoing there.

The indelible impacts as promised by the Union president, Omotayo Akande a.k.a TY may not have spared the SUB as he opined that it should be a befitting structure.

Barely 130 days in office, TY and other Union officers have defied norms and practices of previous Union executives as they have denied themselves the privileges of collecting tickets for meal and other material things from the occupants of the Students' Union Building for the sake of obvious development that will add value to the Union's most lucrative property.

Remarkably, TY while addressing the press commemorating the tenure's 120 days in office stated that he has ordered that no Union officer should approach the Union building occupants like Forks & Fingers, 5vers and others for food or other things but rather those occupying the building come tog…

BEACONS Donates Waste Bins To OAU Community

Members of Beacons Organisation on Saturday, September 5, moved from one spot on campus to another as the group donated swing-top waste bins to the OAU community.

Speaking about the project, the President, Oluwaferanmi Adedeji said: “These swing-top waste bins represent our first statement of intent as an organisation. We felt that there were some crucial spots on campus where we thought waste bins were needed. It’s important for us to keep our campus clean and take this culture with us everywhere we go; cleanliness they say is next to godliness.”

The Vice-President, Adekanye Opeyemi chipped in with some words: “Leadership begins with responsibility in little things. We can all moan about how dirty our environment is, even how dirty Nigeria is but it all begins with the individuals. If everybody imbibes the culture of throwing trash into the trash cans, we will have a neat environment. It is only an aberrant person that will see a clean environment and intentionally mess it up.”

Life On Campus With Mizdee- Male Porters In Female Hostels

I know many people would disagree with me but I think male porters working in female hostels, is totally uncalled for and improper. Some people might say ‘what about the security of lives and properties?’ Why then do we have security guards? I know what is on your mind! Who says females cannot be security guards? Less I divert from my subject, what in Pete’s sake are male porters doing in female hostels. Male porters go around pulling off posters and bills early in the morning. I did not know that pulling off posters requires energy. Even if it requires energy, who says females cannot do that? I did not know when cleaning and keeping the environment became a man’s job. Yet, these same set of people believe in patriarchy.
I remember a certain episode I witnessed in one of the female hostels. A male porter claimed he was going around pulling off posters and then peeped through an open window; he then knocked when someone complained. Tell me, what was he looking for? Some months ago, it…
