(Go Down)


The Vice-Chancellor, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, has admonished students of the institution to shun anti-social behaviour capable of disrupting the smooth running of the university’s academic calendar or lead to an extension of their sojourn in the university.

This warning was made by Ogunbodede at the 2017/2018 matriculation ceremony organised for the 8,158 fresher admitted into the various academic programmes of the University.

According to him, Obafemi Awolowo University has zero tolerance for cultism, examination malpractice, violent behaviour, flagrant disregard to constituted authority and sexual harassment.


He also stressed that the warning is imperative in order to safeguard their studentship and ensure successful academic career, even as he called out that all hands must be on deck to ensure that every semester and session is completed on schedule.

Ogunbodede, who observed that their admission to the University coincides with a period of near economic recession in the country when funds are not readily available for constant provision of municipal services, however, assured them of the willingness of the University authority in ensuring that issues affecting students are addressed as promptly as possible and given priority for provision of essential needs.


He urged them to combine academic excellence with the culture of “Omoluabi” in a challenging, competitive and diverse academic environment, maintaining that they should beware of their colleagues who will want to lure them to join bad groups.

Earlier, the matriculating students had undergone a week-long orientation exercise to familiarise them with the University environment and inculcate into them ethics of the institution.

The annual exercise which is usually packaged by Division of Students’ Affairs featured special Jummat and Interdenominational services, a tour of special places on Campus and other specialised hall activities.
