#ReOpenOAU: Here Is What The Senate Was Briefed With Today

Today, the Upper Chamber of the Nigerian National Assembly finally discussed the continued closure of Obafemi Awolowo University.

Raising a Point of Order on the matter, Senator Babajide Omoworare representing Osun East Senatorial District intimated his colleagues that the institution has been shut for over a 100 days now.

In the lawmaker's submission, he noted that the shut down was owning to three major concerns including:

1. NASU and SSANU strike due to welfare related issues

2. School closed due to issues of hygiene and sanitation caused by workers union.

3. The process of selection of the Vice-Chancellor and the dissolution of the Governing Council

Prior to today's sitting, Omoworare said he had engaged the Senate leadership and Minister of Education to seek for a solution to the crisis.

However, the Senate of the University is expected to sit tomorrow, Thursday, from where the appointment of an Acting Vice Chancellor will be decided, as earlier directed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
