"No University Is Happy Seeing Students Living In Bedbugs Infested Rooms"- OAU VC Comments On State Of Accomodation On Campus

By Ojelabi Jesujoba


It was an auspicious occasion on Saturday, 10th March 2018 at the Ajose Lecture Theatre of the Obafemi Awolowo University, ile-ife as the Association of Campus Journalists hosted her annual International Campus Journalism Conference (ICJC 2018). The conference which is in its fifth year and is held once every session hosts schools from all over Nigeria and seeks to improve the quality of  Campus journalism and journalists in the country.

This year had in attendance important dignitaries such as the Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi; the Vice-Chancellor of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede; Mrs Okuntala, A Business woman and the veteran journalist; Mr Sam Omatseye who was ably represented at the occasion served as the Keynote Speaker and spoke on the topic; Journalism as an elixir in the fight against terrorism.

In his address, the Oluwo of Iwo charged the students on improving the quality of their work whilst giving his views on various philosophical matters. The Oba which left a majority of the students startled by his talk then proceeded to pray for them.

The Vice-Chancellor also in his address at the event commended the organisers of the program for organizing such a program. The Professor of Dentistry confessed that he was also a member of the association some 41 years ago when he participated in Campus Journalism as an undergraduate student under the Buggle news agency. The Vice-chancellor mentioned that despite the fact that the University did not have a department of Mass Communication, it had produced some of the finest journalists in the country and plans were on to introduce the Department.

Speaking on the recent accommodation policy of the University, the Vice-Chancellor expressed that it was a necessary evil and was going to be implemented. He mentioned that the current pressure mounted on the resources of the Halls of residence was way above what they were created to cater for and he acknowledged that the current state of the numbers in the Halls was due to the Ife-Modakeke crisis that saw a lot of students move to campus. He however stated that steps were already being taken towards resolving this and even though it might be inconvenient at first, it was going to pay off ultimately. He then reaffirmed that no fee was being increased as against the current speculations being spread.
