Obafemi Awolowo University sudden rise to media prominence in an examination period is not unconnected to the mega budget meant for phone calls of the Students' Union leaders.

Interestingly, as the Central Executive Council (CEC) led by the President and the Student Representative Council (SRC) led by the much embattled Speaker continue to deny the report, the Hall Executive Councils of the eight (8) halls of residence under the aegis of Hall's Committee have come out to confess and also blame the CEC for the 'skyrocketed budget'.

Below is the press statement from the committee:

We Have No Plan To Increase Hostel Clearance Fee - OAU PRO

Image
The Public Relations Officer of Obafemi Awolowo University, Mr Olanrewaju Abiodun has frowned at the rumour making the rounds that the school management has concluded plans to increase bed space clearance fee as from next session.




Mr Olanrewaju said the school management has no plans to increase the hostel fee.  "Have you seen any circular stating that we want to increase the hostel fee, let people keep circulating rumours. As far as the management is concerned, we have not stated or discussed plans to increase accommodation fee, please ignore the rumours." Mr Olanrewaju said.

The information that the OAU management plans to increase hostel fee has caused lots of controversy since it went viral and it remains to be seen if really the rumor will be mere rumor even after denial of such plans by the school PRO. (ACJ OAU)
