Since January 2, that Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, had reopened for the academic session, there hasn’t been the power supply to the academic area, making preparing for examinations difficult for the student.
“There is the high tendency of students failing this semester and may not be unconnected to the irregularities of the management,” a student, said.
Apart from the complaints of no electricity in the school, the students also complained about not been able to access the University Library.
Isiaka Aransi, the Dean of Students’ Affairs, stated that the students should read their books anyhow.
He noted that the school has not been able to perform duly because of the non- teaching staff on strike who is responsible for these services.
A group, Education Rights Campaign, condemned the situation, blaming poor funding of the education sector in Nigeria, as the cause for the Slack in education.
