Dr. IBK Absconds As Students Lament Over Poor Welfare Conditions

By Farombi Oluwaseun

The  students of the Obafemi Awolowo University  who had just resumed for  the Rain semester expressed their grievances today by coming out en-mass  over the total black out  and poor water supply on campus which  has being close to a week.

The protest which started around 12pm  today, 4th October 2017 from the halls of residence was moved down to the Office of the  Dean ,Divisions of students affairs'.

The students who were not happy met the Dean(Prof.Aransi) in his absence but a repsentative promised a solution will be proffered soon. .

Afterwards, the students  marched down to the aluta building to hear the students Union President's(Mr Oyekan Ibukun a.k.a. Dr.IBK)  address to their agitation. On arrival at the building ,  they urged him to  address them but no response was given.. He was seen absconding through the Secretary General's office when he noticed  students dissatisfaction  with the level of present poor welfarism in the institution..
During his evasion attempt, he  got the office door damaged (Image below) with his  arm hitting the forehead of the Secretary General and escaped through the office..

Speaking with some protesters,they alleged that the  President has been sabotaging the interest of students starting from the bus scandal, dismissal of traders around SUB, bad  welfare condition amongst others.

All efforts to reach the Students Union President as the time of filing this report proved abortive.
