By Adekunle Famuyiwa

The Association of Campus Journalists, Obafemi Awolowo University, ACJOAU has won the Pen Club award at the Campus Journalists Award organized by Youth Digest to celebrate its fifth anniversary.

The award ceremony took place in Abuja on Saturday, December 10, 2022.

Reacting to this development, the President of ACJOAU, Faith Alofe said, “I am happy that we are able to achieve this feat especially when I am the President. The Association has proven to be an outstanding campus journalism outfit.

Even though we couldn’t win some other categories we were nominated for, I am sure we would remain focused. There are still awards we would win and I am really glad about this.

I thank the members of the executive council and the members of the association for their diligence and support. I am indeed grateful.”


Also, Latinwo Gbolahan expressed that his joy knows no bounds when he emerged as the winner of the Gender Equality category.

The male and female gender should be carried along together.”

Breaking: Judicial Council Reinstates Great Ife Speaker

Following the legal steps taken by the speaker of the Students' Representative Council of the Great Ife Students' Union to challenge his suspension as the speaker of the Parliament which according to him was filled with so many constitutional aberrations as the President himself singlehandedly declared the suspension based on the submission of a congressman without any motion raised to the effect of the submission.

After series of court sessions held by the Judicial council of the Union, the council in its ruling  today, December 13, 2022 reinstated the speaker of the Great Ife Student’s Union in a court sitting that was held at the Ken Saro Building earlier 

The court sitting comprised seven justices including the Lord Chancellor, Hon. Justice Abiodun Adesanya, MC.

While delivering the lead judgment that was signed by the Lord Chancellor, Justice Adedapo Taiwo declared that the congressional resolution of Great Ife Student’s Union that birthed the suspension of Mr. Ajadi Toheeb as the speaker of the Great Ife Student’s Representative Council is Unconstitutional, illegal and void.

He further declared that Mr. Ajadi Toheeb is hereby reinstated as the speaker of the Great Ife Student’s Representative Council and should resume work with immediate effect.

The Judicial Council also declared that the entitlement of Mr. Ajadi Toheeb since the 30th of November 2022 should be given and returned to him with immediate effect.

The counsel to Mr. Ajadi Toheeb had earlier argued on three issues all bordering on the unconstitutionality and nullity of the congress and his suspension before the court finally declared that he should be reinstated as the speaker.
