As earlier stated by the management of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU Ile-Ife , that the school will resume as stipulated after the "End of the Year Break", some students remain skeptical about the proposed date considering the  fact that the OAU NASU Chairman tagged the resumption as "unrecognized" and also the welfare condition they left the campus last year.

However, information reaching OAU Peeps News Agency this evening has given a boost to hopes of resumption  as water and electricity supply has been restored in various halls of residence.

President Muhammadu Buhari's 2018 New Year Address


I join my fellow citizens this morning to welcome and celebrate the New Year 2018. This year promises to be pivotal in our quest for CHANGE.

Unfortunately, I am saddened to acknowledge that for many this Christmas and New Year holidays have been anything but merry and happy. Instead of showing love, companionship and charity, some of our compatriots chose this period to inflict severe hardship on us all by creating unnecessary fuel scarcity across the country.

The consequence was that not many could travel and the few who did had to pay exorbitant transport fares. This is unacceptable given that NNPC had taken measures to ensure availability at all depots. I am determined to get to the root of this collective blackmail of all Nigerians and ensure that whichever groups are behind this manipulated hardship will be prevented from doing so again.

Such unpatriotism will not divert the Administration from the course we have set ourselves. O…
