NASU OAU Members Batter Representatives From National Headquarters

Reports coming in indicate that members of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU), Obafemi Awolowo University chapter were involved in a physical scuffle with some representatives of the Union from its National Headquarters.

The representatives were alleged to have come to confiscate all the vehicles of the OAU branch of NASU. This might not be far from the alleged disagreement between the local body of the union and it's National Headquarters in recent times - over the appointment of the OAU Vice Chancellor.

July 15 Deadline For Screening May No Longer Hold

Trailing the scrapping of the Post-UTME exercise by the Federal Government and the following comments on the proposed screening procedure by the University Registrar a few days back, there are strong indications that the July 15th deadline which was previously advertised by the University for it's Admissions Screening may no longer hold.

After a visit by our correspondent to the University's ICT centre, we were able to gather that the Screening procedure which is yet to commence, as the application portal has been offline, can no longer close on the 15th of July.

Our source, who decided to remain anonymous, stated that the Screening exercise may not even occur anytime soon as an acting Vice-Chancellor was needed to  initiate the process. However, no official statements have been made in light of this and thus it may not be unwise to continue to check the University's Portal.

As always, we would continue to keep the Great Ife Community and society at large apprised of furth…

EURO 2016 Final: Seven Football Lessons Picked

By Ridwan A. Oyetunji

The 2016 UEFA European Championship, commonly referred to as UEFA EURO 2016 or simply EURO 2016 has come and gone.  Yesterday night witnessed the final match of the tournament.  The 120-minutes encounter, refereed by the highly revered English referee – Mark Clatenburg, saw the “A Selecao” army coming out winners, against all odds. 

Here are the major football lessons learnt from the France vs Portugal match:

1.  Defending is key
Football in today’s world is not always about attacking and scoring goals.  As important as scoring may seem, a very good defensive setup is needed, so that the scored goals can count at the end.  Moreover, in an encounter like yesterday’s final, where both teams are almost at par, the defensive play may eventually be the difference.  This is evident as the Portugese team’s defensive resilience paid off, ending the match with an important clean sheet.

2. Right Substitutions influence big matches
With Ronaldo limping off in the early sta…
