OAU SUB TV Room Set To Wear A New Look

By David Adetula

The Students' Union Building TV room of Obafemi Awolowo University is set to wear a new look as massive renovation work is ongoing there.

The indelible impacts as promised by the Union president, Omotayo Akande a.k.a TY may not have spared the SUB as he opined that it should be a befitting structure.

Barely 130 days in office, TY and other Union officers have defied norms and practices of previous Union executives as they have denied themselves the privileges of collecting tickets for meal and other material things from the occupants of the Students' Union Building for the sake of obvious development that will add value to the Union's most lucrative property.

Remarkably, TY while addressing the press commemorating the tenure's 120 days in office stated that he has ordered that no Union officer should approach the Union building occupants like Forks & Fingers, 5vers and others for food or other things but rather those occupying the building come together to contribute their quota to put the building in good shape as it will not be business as usual.

The above may have yielded its desired result as one of our correspondents who visited the building recently reported the ongoing massive reconstruction. All the old and bad chairs have been removed and the floor has been tiled.

Efforts to reach the Students' Union Secretary General, Oketooto Oluwaseun a.k.a Hon. Seun for him to tell the current state of the project proved abortive.

Ever since the Students' Union proscription in 2009 until now, the SUB TV room has been in a bad state with no attention given to it even though the Union uses it for some of her activities.
