Nigerian students under the aegis of Alliance of Nigerian Students Against Neo-Liberal Attacks on Thursday staged a public protest in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, and called on anti- graft agencies to arrest and prosecute the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Bamitale Omole, for allegedly mismanaging the university’s resources.
The protesting students said many petitions had been written against the vice chancellor, saying they had enough evidence to back their allegations against him.
Olubanji the Coordinator of the ANSA said “We are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Assembly, EFCC, ICPC and the Code of Conduct Bureau to probe Prof. Bamitale Omole’s administration.
“Prof. Omole administration has earned over N30bn from subventions, more than N1.5bn from school fees, billions of naira from ore-degree program besides funds received from special agencies such as World Bank, TETFUND etc and money from internal sources including donations from corporate bodies. ”
Despite the fund, the students said their hostels were in very poor condition; the lecture rooms were over crowded and epileptic power supply was the order of the day.
