By Mutiu Saheed Abiodun
Professor  Asiyanbola, a lecturer of Stylistics at the department of English, lost his life to the cold hand of death within the last 24 hours. The department was thrown into great shock in the light of this news. Professor Asiyanbola was considered to be a rare gem and he would be missed. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

NASELS OAU Hosts Editorial Head of The Nation Newspapers, Sam Omatseye


 On Thursday, 12th January 2017, the National Association of Students of English and Literary Studies of the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-ife, hosted veteran journalist, writer and public affairs analyst in her symposium. The symposium, which was held at AUD 2 in the University campus, featured a review of Omatseye’s book; “My name is Okoro” and a book reading from the author himself. The book was reviewed by public affairs analyst; Ademola Adesola who appreciated the author’s use of fiction in telling the Nigerian reality.

 In the course of his reading, Mr Omatseye stated that the gruel Nigerian Civil war of the mid-nineties had not been won as successive governments had not made a rational decision to solve and settle it. He also encouraged students of the department to continue to be creative and diligent, keeping in mind the very motto of the Association; “Creativity In Development”.
The Head of the Department of English, Professor Okuneye, cordially welcomed Mr Omatseye, stating the important role of the alumni body in any educational institution. The Head of the Editorial Board of The Nation Newspaper was also welcomed by the Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Professor Gbemisola Adeoti, who further went on to appreciate the executives of the association for organizing such a programme.


In his address, the president of the Association, Mr Afeez Gbadamosi, stated that the programme was one birthed from an attempt to revive the reading culture as, quoting the words of Professor Aina, shared reading was a way to reviving the rapidly dying reading culture. 

Some of the other dignitaries present at the event were Professor Chima Anyadike, Professor Wale Adegbite, Professor Rotimi Taiwo, Dr Omigbule, Dr Kehinde Ayoola, Dr Uwazomba amongst others. There was also a drama presentation from the NASELS Drama Troupe and several poetry renditions to entertain the audience.
