Students of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife, Osun state are calling on the school authority to improve their welfare, particularly rehabilitation of the hostels.
This request is coming on the heels of preparations heralding the entry of a new Vice Chancellor to take over from Professor Bamitale Omole, whose tenure comes to an end in May 2016.
The students complained about the state of hostels, toilets and lack of water.
With all these challenges, the students are optimistic that the incoming Vice Chancellor, who will be taking over from the present one, will help turn their fortunes around.
But while the ASUU members also have their expectations from the incoming administration, the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (SSANU), OAU chapter appears to be dissatisfied with the selection process of the governing council.
They however still have expectations from the incoming administration.
Obafemi Awolowo University, formerly called the University of Ife, is one of the Federal Government owned tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
Founded in 1964, the university has had its fair share of success stories as well as its challenges.
