The students of the Obafemi Awolowo University who had just resumed for the Rain semester expressed their grievances today by coming out en-mass over the total black out and poor water supply on campus which has being close to a week.
The protest which started around 12pm today, 4th October 2017 from the halls of residence was moved down to the Office of the Dean ,Divisions of students affairs'.
The students who were not happy met the Dean(Prof.Aransi) in his absence but a repsentative promised a solution will be proffered soon. .
Afterwards, the students marched down to the aluta building to hear the students Union President's(Mr Oyekan Ibukun a.k.a. Dr.IBK) address to their agitation. On arrival at the building , they urged him to address them but no response was given.. He was seen absconding through the Secretary General's office when he noticed students dissatisfaction with the level of present poor welfarism in the institution..
During his evasion attempt, he got the office door damaged (Image below) with his arm hitting the forehead of the Secretary General and escaped through the office..
Speaking with some protesters,they alleged that the President has been sabotaging the interest of students starting from the bus scandal, dismissal of traders around SUB, bad welfare condition amongst others.
All efforts to reach the Students Union President as the time of filing this report proved abortive.
