IT IS TRAIT TO RESUME HOPE TO THE STUDENTS: #REOPENOAU; THE LEGAL STANDPOINT...
It is with the same degree of deep seated pain in the heart of other students of OAU that we the entire learned populace of Ifelaw, rise to declare in absolute & firm stand, our unwavering support for the campaign for the immediate reopening of Obafemi Awolowo University for the 2015/2016 academic session.
We at OAU did the 2014 academic session in 2016, following the current crises, we are likely do do 2015 session in 2017, & we the students see this as an act of sabotage on our purported "bright" future.
We therefore, guided by the law of conscience, humbly express our articles of plea to all relevant parties involved in this crises to look up to posterity & open up doors of your heart for a peaceful resolution & sustained dialogue for better system.
We invite the Federal Government to put the interest of the students above any other reason in resolving this issue because primarily the institution exist because of the students.
All parties, the students inclusive must pursue restoring the university as a hub of innovation, a centre of excellence & a web of civility & hope for the advancement of humanity.
We enjoin students to resume writing not only on social media alone but constructive articles & letters to the editors of newspapers.
No war has ever ended without peace & dialogue, ergo, it is expedient to accept the truism that peace is superior to war but war precedes peace. We have gone to war; its time for lasting solution for resolving this crises.
Yours-in- Service for a Better Humanity,
Ekpa, Stanley Ekpa
Secretary to the Society
for the LAW STUDENTS' SOCIETY, OAU.
