Protest in OAU over Jonathan’s Visit

Students of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Osun State, on Friday, protested over President Goodluck Jonathan’s visit to their institution, demanding that he addresses them before his departure.

President Jonathan had attended the Yoruba Unity Summit organised by the Committee on Yoruba Progress, southwest geo-political zone of the country where the president was endorsed for his re-election in the 2015 general election.

But the placard-wielding students converged at the Oduduwa Hall, venue of the conference to protest what they termed “rot in the educational sector” booed Jonathan after the summit.

They displayed placards with inscriptions like: 

“We Condemn Jos Killing of Students, Students Are Not Chicken”, 

"Don’t Sell Education As You Sold Electricity.”, 

We Demand Total Reversal of 2014 Hiked School Fees, We are Not Responsible For Jonathan’s Ineptitude.” among other inscriptions.
