Students of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, in Osun State, on Monday failed to resume for academic activities despite the Federal Government directive for immediate reopening of all federal universities in the country.
A visit to the institution, shows that none of the students were seen on campus for possible commencement of academic activities as directed by the Government.
Mr Abiodun Olarenwaju, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, confirmed that not a single student was on campus ”for any reason whatsoever”.
He said that the few lecturers on campus were around ”for reasons other than academic activities.
‘’Sincerely, none of our students show up on campus as of today, but some of the lecturers are around, although they are not coming for any academic activity, they always come around for other reasons.
‘’You know our lecturers have not totally deserted the campus like that, many of them still come around to do one or two things in their offices, but no teaching and learning activities.’’
