OAU students vow to stop elections from holding if classes don’t begin



The students leaders of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun state have vowed to stop election if the schools did not resume classes.

The students converged on the main campus of the school University around 7am with placards, pen and exercise books as they claimed some of their lecturers will be at the blockade to lecture them.

“We have warned government not to allow student move to the streets before resolving their impasse with ASUU. Now that we are here, we will continue to protest untill the schools are reopened.

“We will not allow an enabling environment for any election, especially, the Governorship election in Osun in July as well as the general election next year if the situation is not addressed.

“Also, we want a permanent solution to the crisis, not temporary that will, after three or six months call for another strike or protest for proper negotiation”, she said.
