LSS OAU President And Treasurer Suspended Over Scholarship Issues

The President and Treasurer of the Law Students' Society, LSS, Obafemi Awolowo University chapter, Olaniran Quadri and Aiyeetan Christiana have been suspended for their failure to constitutionally 'handle' the association money appropriately.

In an emergency parliamentary sitting held yesterday, Wednesday at the Faculty, the legislative arm of the Society, the Law Student Representative Council (LSRC) comprising of representatives from all levels of the association debated extensively on the allegation of financial mishandling and thereafter came to the resolution to suspend the President and Treasurer for three and two weeks respectively.

Confirming the development to OAU Peeps News Agency separately, an honourable of the Parliament and another prominent member of the Society said both of them (President and Treasurer) were suspended after thorough debates and conclusion of their failure to follow due procedure in the handling of society's money. According to these sources, what led to the suspension actually centres on the controversy surrounding the scholarship scheme to indigent students initiated by the Quadri-led administration.

When asked about the fate of the already scheduled congress which is expected to hold today, the honourable revealed that the officers' suspension will not affect the Congress earlier billed for today as the Vice President is expected to preside over the Congress going by constitutional provisions.
