The management of Obafemi Awolowo
University has banned the institution’s
students union government till further

management had earlier announced that
all students should proceed on a mid-
semester break, but was resisted by the
union’s leadership.
According to a statement on Thursday
issued by the university’s Registrar, Mr.
D.A Awoyemi, some students were
planning to cause trouble in the
institution and so the activities of the
union has been suspended till further
“The activities of the union is hereby
suspended till further notice,” the
statement said.
“It has come to our notice that some
students are yet to go home, a refusal to
comply with these directives shall be
regarded as violation of the university
rules and regulation in general.”
Reacting, the secretary General of the
students’ union, Oketooto Oluwaseun,
said the union would react after a
meeting of its leaders.
“We are in a meeting right now to
discuss this latest development , though it
is not acceptable,” he said.
