OAU Temporarily Shut Down After Students’ Protest




School authorities at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, have closed down the school after 48 hours of student protests.

The 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 potable 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, Biodun Olanrewaju, who confirmed the closure of the university in an interview with NAN, said that the date of resumption would be announced soon.

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

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
