Obafemi Awolowo University which was shut down months back due to the domestic crisis caused by NASU and SSANU OAU on the appointment of Prof Salami Ayobami as Vice Chancellor after the exit of Prof Tale Omole, has left the campus without Governing Council and VC for months now after the intervention of the Presidency.

In a letter addressed to the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, the President directed the Senate not to consider any of the candidates who earlier contested for the position.

According to the staff and students, the federal government’s decision was a step towards the redemption and integrity of the institution, which for weeks had been a clamour for reopening of the school on social media which have¬†attracted the intervention of the concerned Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan himself and other parties which can be concluded to have brought about this directive to OAU Senate from the Presidency for immediate recommendation of a qualified person for the position of Acting VC after the exit of the immediate past Vice Chancellor, Prof Bamitale Omole.
