OAU Students Vow to Vote Against Jonathan in 2015 Election Unless…

The students of Obafemi Awolowo University
(OAU), Ile-
Ife, under the aegis of the Students Union
Government
(SUG), have vowed to mobilize students across
the nation
against President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-
election in
2015, unless he fulfill his promise to reduce the
university’s school fees.
According to a statement by the Students Union
President, Isaac Ibikunle and Secretary, Bamidele
Oludare; “We in OAU may have no other option
but to
mobilize our rank and file against the Jonathan/
Sambo
second term ambition if these demands are not
met
immediately.
“Exigency and need for accountability demands
that we
remind the Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan of his
promise
to the Great Ife community as well as Nigerian
students
at large.
“Nigerian students historically have permanently
occupied the position of the conscience of the
nation as
well as the voice of the downtrodden. We have
submitted
a protest letter to Mr. President containing the
following
demands among others.
“That our hiked fees be reversed to status quo
and
embargo placed on increment in other federal
institutions. That the welfare conditions of
students be
improved vis a vis construction and equipping of
qualitative hostel buildings, lecture theatres,
laboratories
etc.
“That the Federal Government follow the
UNESCO twenty
six percent budgetary allocation to education as
such
that education be properly funded by the
government as
hike in fees have become the culture of Nigerian
tertiary
institutions at all levels to fund themselves.
“December 28 marks one full month of the
President’s
visit to our campus. Your Excellency sir, we
believe that
our demands are the least that can be done by
your
government as far as education is concerned.
“We are not oblivious of the stressful demands
on
governance as well as efforts being made towards
securing your second term in office. However,
we as the
conscience of the nation and the leaders of today
consider meeting these few demands of ours as
practically exigent national needs that could even
have
effect on your second term bid.
“Despite the six months of our life given to the
ASUU
struggle in 2013, many of us have had course to
stay
home for some 2 or 3 more months in 2014 due
to
struggles against hike in fees. We in OAU may
have no
other option but to mobilize our rank and file
against the
Jonathan/Sambo second term campaign if these
demands are not met immediately.”
