The Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife has been shut down indefinitely by the school authorities over continuous protests by some of its workers.
This was revealed by the Registrar of the university, Dotun Awoyemo on Tuesday.
It would be recalled that ‎workers of the OAU under the aegis of NASU and SSANU, intensified their protest against non-payment of allowances and alleged imposition of a Vice-Chancellor despite the ‘no work’, ‘no pay’ threat by the university’s authorities.
The workers vowed to stop the newly appointed VC from resuming office on Friday.

Recall the counsel to the university denied the appointment of a new VC at the Osogbo Federal High Court hearing last Friday afternoon, but the Governing Council on Saturday officially announced Salami.
Meanwhile, Mr. Awoyemo maintained that the management’s decision to close the institution indefinitely was for the safety of students and staff.

In his words, “We have shut down the university indefinitely pending the time that we will resolve issues with our workers – Non-academic Staff of University (NASU) and Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (SSANU).
“We have asked our newly admitted students to go home and postponed the resumption of old students indefinitely.”

It was gathered that old students of the OAU were expected to resume next week after a two-month break but this might not be possible due to the new development in the University.
