By Okafor Eberechukwu
So the ongoing final year brethren week popularly called FYB week came with a full package. The final year week is a time for jubilation as the graduating students are leaving the university. For most departments, it usually features a costume day and we saw some unique costumes that blew our minds. 

This year, it would seem the FYBs carefully chose their costume as we saw; "The Marlians", "The dead bride" , "Parte after Parte" "Tenitheentertainer", " La Casa de Papel" and so much more. Most of which were gotten from movie series and some other from popular celebrity outfits. Some students were very creative in the selections of their costumes while of course, some outfits were below the expectations of the students.

The final year week which holds on the last week of lectures annually is for the purpose of creating a memorable experience for the graduating students. 
According to an OAU student, "Some FYBs w…

Faculty of Law OAU Regains Accreditation

The Faculty of Law of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife regained her accreditation after losing it almost two sessions ago. 

Being one of the foremost Faculties of Law in Nigeria, a lot of people were shocked when the Faculty of Law was unable to meet up with the criteria of the National Universities Commission. As expected this led to the Faculty alongside a few other like the Faculty of Dentistry and the Department of Nursing losing their accreditation.  This loss of accreditation also led to these faculties not being able to admit students in the past two admission exercises organised by the Obafemi Awolowo University. 
While the accreditation process is still ongoing, details on the process in the other discredited departments have not been obtained. Although, there is a lot of hope that these departments would join the Faculty of Law to regain accreditation by the NUC.
