Owolabi Miracle,TESA OAU President Impeached for Allegedly Embezzling Association"s Fund

By John Beloved

The parliamentary house of the Technology and Engineering Students" Association (TESA) OAU has impeached Miracle Owolabi as the president of the association on  at a parliamentary sitting held on Thursday April 18,2018.
  OAU Peeps News Agency learnt that before his impeachment, the president had been on an indefinite suspension since November 18 2018 for some gross misconduct.

Investigation conducted by OAU peeps news agency revealed that his suspension which lasted for over 5 months was initially triggered by the  ratification of one Bukunmi, an 100 level school of nursing student located outside Osun state which he brought into the local organisation committee (LOC) to plan a conference that was to be organised by the association.

However his reinstatement lingered as further investigations revealed cases of  "gross misconduct" and his involvement in series of unconstitutional actions which were discovered during the period of his suspension.


Before We Accept “The Proposal”

By 'Joba Ojelabi

“Logistics”; the most probable reason when a Nigerian event doesn’t start on time. So much that any experienced Master of Ceremony knows that the first thing to do at an event is to apologize for “starting behind schedule” and if the MC is euphemistic enough, the cause would be “logistics” or in other words, “reasons beyond their control” which leaves any rational mind wondering how feasible this is. How does the organizer of an event in a continent not known so much for natural disasters claim that the organization of an event simply went beyond their control? And this phenomenon becomes so recurrent that it gets it own name; “the African time”. Luckily, Falz, Dike Chukwumerije and the Simply Poetry team has shown us that artists and organisers of Shows can actually be true to time; that if a show is slated for 4:00pm, it can actually start by 4:00pm. Sadly, this was the first failure of Joshua Peter’s “The Proposal”. The first show was slated for 4:00pm but woul…

Allegation Of Dam Poisoning By The OAU Management Is A Lie-- Ooni of Ife

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi has described the claim by the management of Obafemi Awolowo University over dam poisoning as unfounded.

The university management of the institution earlier alleged that the indigenes of Ife had poisoned the dam that supplies water to the institution over land dispute.

It was reported that some armed hoodlums who are claiming ownership of some portions of the university land poured poisonous chemicals in the dam which killed all the fishes and aquatic animals there.

 However, the monarch has denied the claim saying it is illogical for his people to poison themselves because a large number of the members of OAU community are indigenes of Ile-Ife.

Speaking through his spokesperson, Moses Olafare, the Ooni of Ife said he was surprised that a university could make such a claim.

“How can Ife poison their own people? Either as students, staffers, shop owners or investors, the residents of OAU include more Ile-Ife indigenes than anywhere else. S…

Hoodlums Invade OAU, Poison Dam Over Land Dispute

By PUNCH Newspapers The land dispute between the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife in Osun State and some indigenes of the ancient town has assumed a new dimension as some of the aggrieved persons, claiming ownership of some portions of the university land, invaded the university on Wednesday and reportedly poisoned the university dam.
Sources in the university told our correspondent on Friday that some indigenes, who claimed their land was taken for the university when it was established in 1962, had been selling some portions of the land.
The sources said the aggrieved indigenes were challenged by the university and stopped from further trespassing.
But the issue was said to have taken another dimension, when some of the aggrieved land owners allegedly invaded the university from the Parakin area and headed for the Opa Dam, which is the only source of water to the university community.
Before the university security operatives could challenge them, the armed hoodlums were said to …

Dear Fresher- ‘Joba Ojelabi

Dear Fresher,

I write to you to share with you a different perspective to some of the realities that would house you for the next few years. Under normal circumstances, this letter should meet you in a place of excitement and curiosity. After all, it is scientific for any normal creature to want to explore when introduced to novelty. But we are not all always under normal circumstances and this perhaps is first thing you must learn. In the next few days, almost everything you would encounter would be novel to you and as such might require some getting used to, especially the people. Sometimes what you refer to as normal might be grossly abnormal to someone else. In situations where you have to share some resources with such a person, it becomes imperative to find a mutually accepted common ground. This ability to reach compromises you would need as its need would arise in every facet of your new life; in hostels, classrooms, and with things as seemingly meagre as public transport. The …

The Dilemma of Moral Instructions: Exploring the Fela Falana Construct

Thoughts on Falz's Moral Instruction Album by 'Joba Ojelabi

If a need to rank art forms ever arose, it might not be entirely foolish to bet that music would clinch the top ranks. With the diverse genres and musical subclassifications that exist, it remains perhaps the most relatable form of art. While a person might find it difficult to see the beauty of a painting, or appreciate the imperfections of a sculpture, it’s safer to assume that there’s a song for every man or at least every mood. Whether it’s the solemn sound of Yaani or the aggressive vibrations that characterizes the metallic genre of music, there’s someone that vibrates on the same frequency. This is why music, as a form of art, has over time been used when there’s a need to communicate with the public.

By hiding their message in the lyrics of a song, brands have been able to sell their products, politicians have able to get their names on the lips of the masses, and activists have been able to spread their ideal…
