The management of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife has asked students to vacate the university after its emergency senate meeting held on Sunday.
It was gathered that the closure, which was.....
tagged as ‘mid-semester break’ was connected to the continuous protest by workers under the aegis of Non Academic Staff Union, OAU chapter.
It will be recalled that the workers, who started with a warning strike on July 1, alleged that they have not been paid their hazard allowances for about 64 months.
When contacted, the University Public Relations Officer, Mr. Biodun Olarewaju, explained that the university declared a ‘mid semester break’ not closure.
He debunked that the break was connected to the protest by workers of the university, saying that the school only wanted the students to go and have some rest.
However, it was gathered that the university has never declared such a break since its establishment.
Drop a comment...thanks!
