We Have Seen 3 Vice Chancellors & Yet To Be Matriculated - OAU Freshmen
"I have witnessed Omole, Salami and Elujoba's tenures and i have not even done my matriculation" one fresh student of OAU said.
Assuming the school was on, the academic calendar had scheduled last Thursday for the matriculation ceremony for the fresh students.
The fresh students resumed on the May 28 this year when the much embattled former Vice Chancellor, Professor Bamitale Omole was there. After spending less than a month, the students were sent home due to the crisis that came with the appointment of Omole's successor.
Recall, on June 6 this year, OAU Peeps News Agency reported that the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academics), Professor Ayobami Salami was appointed the substantive 11th Vice Chancellor of OAU. However, his inability to resume due to the troubles of Workers' Unions forced President Muhammadu Buhari to suspend the VC appointment processes for the institution and at the same time, dissolve the University's Council.
On Thursday, upon the directive of the President, the Village Chemist, Professor Anthony Elujoba was appointed by the Senate to act as the Vice Chancellor of the institution.
In all, between May and now, Obafemi Awolowo University students have lived through three different Vice Chancellors.
