About 150 students of Christian Mission School for the Deaf, Ibadan, yesterday, protested the acquisition of five hectares from the 16 hectares of land bought by the mission, for the establishment of the first university for the deaf in Africa.

The protest was staged on the site of the proposed deaf university, opposite First Technical University, Ibadan, owned by Oyo State Government, on Ibadan-Lagos Expressway.

At the time the protest took place, some workers, probably engaged by the government, were on the site moulding blocks and sinking a well on the land. Dozens of bags of cement as well as pegging for foundation of building structures were sighted on the land. When Daily Sun contacted the Commissioner for Land, Housing and Survey, Isaac Omodewu, on phone, he declined comment, and on a request to meet him in person for comment, he said no. Instead, he said the permanent secretary of the ministry should be contacted. Efforts to meet the permanent secretary proved abortive.

However, Technical Supervisor for the school, Solomon Fasanya, in an interview with journalists, said the 39 acres, which is 16 hectares of land, were acquired in 2004, for training of deaf students from primary school to university level.

He said years after the mission bought the land and started partial development of the site, the land fell into acquisition area by the government and, subsequently, the government wrote a letter to the mission, that four hectares, which is approximately 10 acres, would be acquired by the government.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
