Alfred Olufemi.

He who comes in to equity must come with clean hands…

The sex-for-marks story rocked the media space in the month of April with a lot of progress reports following the 4 minutes 23 seconds audio recording in a phone call between one Professor Richard  Akindele and Ms Monica Osagie, a postgraduate student of Obafemi Awolowo university. It was established in the conversation that the former demanded Five times of sex from the latter in exchange for marks.

The intervention of several organisations and their interest in the story prompted the university authorities to dismiss the erring Don after a detailed reports from an investigative committee set up to look in to the issue. The university confessed that the media coverage of the story, which has soiled the name of the school in the public domain, can not be disconnected, as a reason, from the dismissal of the Professor. Of course, CCN and some international media outfits reported the ‘sextortion’.

For the second time, the Vice-chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, promised the reinstatement of the Students' union activities in the school with no definite time, OAU KILONSHELE can report.


As mentioned on Wednesday evening, in his address at the Football finals of the university's Inter-faculty games, the VC assured the students present that he will see to the reinstatement of the Union.

"If not for my participation in the students union while I was an undergraduate, I would not become the Vice-chancellor today. I will make sure we bring back the union, though we have hall executives in our hostels."

Meanwhile, when the audience of students questioned the time for the reinstatement, chanting "when?", Professor Eyitope proceeded with his speech without addressing the probing audience. He was booed afterwards.

"Another phase of your life and academic pursuit is being admitted in to the university. It is a progress everyone wants to reckon with."

OAU Kilonshele News Outfit uses this medium to welcome freshmen to Obafemi Awolowo University, the great seat of intellectualism and cultural heritage. Undoubtedly, this is 'a dream come true' to many.

There are rules guiding your stay on campus, which some will be relayed to you during the orientation programme while you will learn others on your own- through interactions, observations and experiences.

As a 'freshman', have it at the back of your mind that your primary assignments on campus is your academics. Others are secondary. As a matter of fact, you are first a student before being a member of a students' association or body. That gives your studentship a priority above other things.

However, Four years ( 5-6 years in some cases) is too small to develop yourself in every ramification that you deem fit. Ensure th…
