Full Text Of Buhari's Children Day Message

I heartily greet and felicitate with all Nigerian children on the occasion of this year’s Children’s Day celebration.
I seize the opportunity of this year’s celebration which comes just two days before the first anniversary of the present Administration, to reassure our children and youth that we remain fully committed to fulfilling our promise of a better Nigeria for all of our people.

On this happy occasion for our children, I reaffirm my belief that it is the right of every Nigerian child to have access to quality and affordable education, as well as healthcare and other basic necessities for a good life, in a peaceful and secure environment.
The good health and well-being of Nigerian children remain a top priority on our agenda for national development and we have demonstrated our strong commitment in this regard with the allocation of N12.6 billion in the 2016 budget for vaccines and programmes to prevent childhood killer diseases such as polio, measles and yellow fever.

OAU SUB To Wear New Look

Despite the indefinite suspension of the Students Union of the Obafemi Awolowo University, some renovation work have been observed in her Students Union building. The building which houses the office of the President of the Union, the Security Room, some other important offices and business establishments was noticed to wear a new look as most walls around the building had been repainted and some floors on the inside tiled. There are speculations that the renovation was done by the Division of Students Affairs in preparation to Usher in a new administration for the Union. However, efforts to reach the Dean and Vice Dean of Students Affairs proved abortive as their offices remain clogged by complainants having issues with bedspace allocation.

We would hope the speculations come out true as the Students community continue to remain improperly represented without an umbrella body.

"OAU VC Makes Personal Phone Number Available To All Students"- SLAN

Professor Bamitale Omole

Student Leaders’ Alliance of Nigeria (SLAN) has passed a vote of confidence on Prof Bamitale Omole, outgoing Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in Ile-Ife, Osun State.

The group, which comprised former students’ union leaders, condemned the recent attacks on the VC, saying the people behind them knew nothing about university administration.

In a statement by SLAN’s international coordinator Oluwaloseyi Babaeko, the group said Omole deserved commendation for improving the academic standard of the university, which global rating increased under his leadership.

Babaeko, a masters student at the School of Politics and International Studies at the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, said: “The call for the arrest and probe of Prof Omole shows desperation for vendetta among the faceless people, who do not like developments brought about by the outgoing VC. Their argument is not only shallow; it is laughable, baseless and lacks merit.”
