OAU Ile-Ife to Remain Shut, But Convocation Still Holds Next Week

0

The authorities of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, have closed down the school after 48 hours of students unrest.

But the school’s convocation ceremony earlier slated for next week will still hold.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the institution was shut down on Tuesday after an emergency meeting of Senate.

The students started the protest on Monday over epileptic power supply, unavailability of portable water supply in their halls of residence and alleged poor funding of education in Nigeria.

The protest prevented free flow of traffic into and out of the campus.

The institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Biodun Olanrewaju, confirmed the closure of the university in an interview with NAN. He said the date of resumption would be announced as and when due.

He, however, said the convocation slated for next week would still hold.
