The management of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has banned the institution’s Students Union Government (SUG) until further notice.
This came after the management announced that all students should proceed on a mid-semester break, an order that 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, hence the decision.
“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.”
In his reaction, 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.
