OAU: NASELS Loses A Reputable Lecturer

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.

A Fanciable Rubbish System: The Definition of our Immediate Society.

I don't know when to point to in exactness the last time parity took charge for real (or to a very considerable extent) in this society. I am sure in my own head anyway, for things to be this goodly poor; in the past, things had to have been directly the opposite. Realistically now, when I think figuratively deeply about the superstructure of the kind of rulership this society used to have way back when capitalism was beginning from communalism or even before that, before the slave trade kick-started. There used to be peace. Humankind on these selfsame lands upon which we tread today as pin-riddened paths used to be together in oneness, in utter sufficiency of almost everything in all their aspects of being as they multiplied and subdued their earths as the Lord God has directed. Although, there would be misunderstandings and some negative natural occurences constant with man but such would be... or was at a very miniature weight. Thus, they were together sharing fine myths and le…

#FreeElujoba: Nigeria On The Brink Of Slaughtering One Of Her Finest Administrators On The Slab Of A Nepotistic Anti-corruption Drive

Some of us (Nigerian youths) have made up our mind and sworn to ourselves to uphold the great values of humanity that are obviously lacking in the country’s leadership today, even while we are yet to lead, when we are privileged to lead and for the rest of our lives. The simple reason is because we clearly understand, feel and suffer what selfish and corrupt governance, incompetency and anarchy have made of Nigeria and her defenseless citizens.

Unfortunately, as I write, the failing Nigerian system is once again bearing so hard on our resolve, our resilience and motivation to remain true to this noble decision of ours. You know it’s quite pathetic and saddening right?

I have been a community member, an ardent follower of events and a critical observer of administrations in Obafemi Awolowo University for a while, especially in the last 6 years or thereabout. I have never witnessed a kind of the leadership brought on board by Professor Anthony Elujoba.

To tell the obvious, it was more tha…

Elujoba To Appear In Court Today Over Misappropriation Allegations

A former Vice Chancellor of the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Anthony Elujoba, is expected to be arraigned today (Friday) by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC over allegations that he stole N1.4 billion while in office.
Last year, Mr Elujoba was quizzed by operatives of EFCC at its Ibadan zonal branch for allegedly diverting the sum meant for projects without approval of the school’s governing council or federal ministry of education.

He was specifically said to have used the money to pay illegal allowances to staff including himself through it.
He has been detained since Thursday by the anti-graft commission, PREMIUM TIMES learnt; and his international passport seized.

Although he is accused of wrongdoing by the EFCC, Mr. Elujoba is popular among staff and students at the university, who believe he is being witch-hunted for bringing normalcy to the institution during the short period he was in office.
His wife in a brief interaction with PREMIUM TIMES pleaded that…
