The authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife, has disclosed that the general public should disregard a release written by a supposed student of the institution, expressing a personal opinion that the VP Yemi Osinbajo was not welcome in the university.
According to the Nigerian Tribune News, a release by the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Abiodun Olanrewaju, stated that the Council, Management, Senate, Staff, Students and the entire OAU community hold the office of the VP in high esteem and will never hesitate to continue in such manner.
“The OAU community, particularly the students are eagerly waiting for a day when either the President or Vice President Yemi Osinbajo or both of them will come to OAU on a visit. The community is ready to give a rousing welcome to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria and renowned Professor of Law whose brilliant performance in the present administration has done the academic community proud.
“We hereby advice the general public to disregard in its entirety, the release by anybody which runs contrary to the motto of the university; For Learning and Culture. We want to use this medium to reassure the students that the present university academic calendar is on course and remains sacrosanct,” the release reads.
