Special Release to all Students on Resuscitation of the Students' Union in Obafemi Awolowo University

It has come to the knowledge of the University Management that the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Zone D (South West) is planning to stage a protest in respect of “Resuscitation of Students’ Union in Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

The University Management wishes to inform all students that prior to the commencement of COVID-19 Lockdown in March, 2020, Obafemi Awolowo University had taken steps to ensure that the Obafemi Awolowo University Students’ Union was resuscitated on two different occasions but the processes were truncated due to the activities of some group of students on our campus.

Meanwhile, Protest or No Protest, the University Management has already determined to reinstate the Suspended Students Union before the end of this current 2019/2020 Academic Session.

In recognition of the right of freedom of association and assembly as well as the right to ensure that students play their roles actively in decision-making processes as one of the major stakeholders in the University, the Management, through the Dean of Student Affairs, took another step in January this year 2021 to present another proposal to the University Senate with a view to ensuring that the Students’ Union of Obafemi Awolowo University was resuscitated.

Accordingly, the University Senate considered the proposal at its virtual meeting in January, 2021 and in its wisdom advised that resuscitation of the Students’ Union, being an exclusive preserve of students, should not be executed virtually while the students were not on ground in the University.

The University Management hereby wishes to inform all students (and other stakeholders) that as soon as all students return to campus fully during the Rain Semester of the current 2019/2020 academic session, machinery will be put in place to set the ball rolling concerning the resuscitation of the Students’ Union in Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.

We want to sincerely appreciate all our students and other stakeholders for displaying high level of maturity thus far.

In the interim, we advised our students to continue to be law abiding and go about their normal academic activities as arranged by the University Management.
