Pastor E. A. Adeboye Bags OAU Honorary Doctorate Degree

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has been conferred with an honorary doctorate degree by the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife.

The award was conferred on Adeboye during the 41st Special Convocation held at the Oduduwa Hall of the OAU, Ile-Ife on Friday.

Adeboye, an alumnus of the OAU, said the award would spur him to contribute more to the development of the university.

According to him, the award should serve as a lesson to everyone not to look down on anybody.

According to him, what is impossible with men are possible for God that is why one should never write off anybody.

He added that when the late Oba Adesoji Aderemi was given an honorary award by this university, “I said to my friends that one day, I too will like to get an honorary award of this university.

“My friends laughed and said if it is something that can be worked for, he has no doubt that I will get it because I am hardworking and brilliant.

“He said honorar…

Couple Runs Stark Naked In OAU

A male and female, probably a couple, were seen running stark naked towards the Road one gate of Obafemi Awolowo University this evening.

At about 4:45pm when academic activities were been rounded off in the institution and students and workers are trying to find their ways back to their various domains, a couple coming towards the gate parked a motorcycle just by the bridge before the mini entry to Maintenance Hostel, removed their clothes and ran at top speed towards the gate. A few bike men stopped to maybe help but the couple who had obviously turned it to a competition ran side by side at top speed.

A lot of speculations have been made. Some feel the couple ran mad at that point, some people have speculated it could be 'magun' (a yoruba medicine for unfaithful spouses) because they were eventually seen making out at the school gate before they were separated.

As at the time of filing this report, the couple has been carried away but we have not received any official sta…

No fewer than 15 students of Obafemi Awolowo University who are involved in cultism have surrendered and renounced their membership in the course of the ministration of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E. A. Adeboye.

The 2016 edition of the annual University Thanksgiving Service and maiden Holy Ghost Night for the youths held yesterday at the new Crusade Ground of the institution and had Pastor Adeboye minster during the evening session. The minister who spoke on the topic: ‘The right hand of the Lord’ mentioned seven powerful characteristics of the right hand of God. He said the Power of God is qualitative, quantitative, defiles time, creative, defiles space, defiles the laws of nature and that it surpasses other powers.

Following the altar call where those willing to give their lives to Christ were called to the front space and prayed for, the cleric further made a call to students who have joined and are members of any cultist group to come out …

For Learning, Culture And Common Sense - Pope Jay

Ab initio, I have done my best to ensure that my pen is not a casualty in the Professor Y.K Yusuf matter but as it stands now I can no longer prevent the bloodshed of my thoughtful pen. I would like to firstly mention that I do not have any firsthand information as regards the issue and so some of the assertions I would be making in the course of this article may not be as precise but I believe some of the aftereffects of the rather unfortunate incident is apparent enough to reach some basic inferences. Almost every living soul in the walls of the Obafemi Awolowo University is familiar with the motto of the University. In fact you could almost hear the bats on campus sing it if you listen closely sometimes and now courtesy of the Professor Effiong Eyo Okon Golden Jubilee Garden, even an observant first time visitor should be able to correctly state the institution’s motto. I recall that as a fresh student of the University, a high number of lecturers emphasized the importance of both p…

OAU Authorities Bar Making Of Announcement During Lectures

The authorities of Obafemi Awolowo University have informed the students of the institution that any attempt to make announcement in the course of lecture delivery henceforth is tantamount to serious misconduct.

Contained in the circular issued by the University and signed by the Registrar, D. O. Awoyemi, the Management stated that teaching and academic instructions are core activities of the University and as such should not be disrupted under any guise.

"It has come to the notice of the University authorities that some students are in the habit of disrupting lectures under the guise of making announcement to fellow students while lecturers are giving lectures.

"It must be emphasized that teaching and academic instructions are core activities of the University and are therefore sacrosanct in the University. Disruption of this core academic activity is therefore an ugly and an unwholesome aberation that must stop forthwith.

"Accordingly, students are hereby reminded tha…

The Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife is yet to release her supplementary admission list for the candidates who wrote the 2015 UTME when the registration for the 2016 UTME closes on Friday, January 15, 2016.

Students who wrote the last Post-UTME to secure their place in OAU have been left in doubt even as the door to join other candidates for this year is about to be shut in the next three days.

The Supplementary admission list by now should have been out so that the students can know their fate and decide whether to register for the 2016 UTME for those that will not make the list.

For those students who expressed their disappointment and frustration at the slow process in which the admission exercise is being handled, they have decided to register for the 2016 UTME within the next few days to beat the Friday deadline. Some of these candidates though express optimism that they w…
