OAU Governing Council Chairman Visits Awo Hall

The recently appointed Chairman of the Obafemi Awolowo University Governing Council, Dr Yemi Ogunbiyi in the company of some other top officials of the University paid a visit to some Halls of residence today, Tuesday 24th January 2017.

His visit to the Obafemi Awolowo Hall was momentous as students thronged out to give their ovation and applause.

The Public Relations Officer of Obafemi Awolowo University, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju, opened the floor by introducing the Chairman to the students. The chairman then spoke to the students, explaining that he was there to carry out the duty assigned him by the Federal Government.

Two students were allowed to speak their minds, as per the state of the hostel they live in. They listed the plights of poor toilet condition, infrequent supply of water, shaky supply of electricity, free WiFi in hostels and in "academics" and the likes. They pleaded these and others are attended to as soon as possible. The chairman in response said that all would only be plausible if there is an increment in hostel fees; he asked if they wouldn't mind of there is and majority of the students present responded "yes".
