“NO ID CARDS, NO EXAMS” – UI STUDENTS REAFFIRM,
SEND STRONG SIGNAL TO SCHOOL MANAGEMENT TO
PREPARE FOR THEM
The Entirety of University of Ibadan Students at the
Congress held at the Students’ Union Building Foyer on
27th of May 2017 has unanimously agreed to the
resolutions deliberated and subsequently issued Ultimatum
of 2-days to the management to constitute welfare-board
meeting, constitute a Fact-finding committee amongst
other resolutions.
While deliberating on the delay in the issue of ID cards, the
Speaker of the SRC, 7th Assembly, Rt. Hon Asiwaju
stressed that “For the past one year, the Premier University
is finding it difficult to produce school ID cards”, He
emphatically stated further that the concern about the ID
card is not just about examinations alone. The SU
President, Com. Ojo Aderemi lamented about the
challenges he encountered as regards changing of
signatories to the account due to problem with
identification because he does not have a valid school ID
card. Series of reactions and counter-reactions from
Congressmen were analyzed, one of which a Congressmen
posited that “Let us strong-arm the school, if nothing is
done as regards the, let us invite the EFCC to come and
audit the management”, another Congressman said “We’ve
paid for this ID cards, why is there a delay? We don’t want
a sub-standard ID card, we must see samples”… “Since we
are not cowards, we are not holding the examination
without ID cards, we’ll take the war to the media”. Another
reaction was that “The fact that we paid for something and
we are not being given is corruption, I would employ that
we should invite the EFCC”.
The hallmark of the reactions, was when a Congressman
suggested in his words that “Let’s use democracy day, May
29 to solidarize by going to media houses NTA, TVC and
the likes” it was furthermore added that major federal
roads in Ibadan will be on the lockdown due to the
insensitivity of the school management.
After much heated deliberations at the Congress ground,
the resolution of the Students as regards ban placed on the
use of hotplates, delay in production of ID cards,
victimization of students was to take over the Federal
roads of Ibadan on democracy day, May 29th and to
furthermore keep the media abreast as regards the whole
imbroglios at hand facing students welfare.
