OAU Tuition Hike: Ooni Promises Students Reversal In 24 Hours

Ooni of Ife, Oba Okunade Sijuade, has waded into the face-off between the students of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State and the management over hike in the tuition.

Represented by his second in command, High Chief Lowa, the Adimula of Ife while addressing the students during their protest that led to the blockage of the roads linking Ife with other communities, Ooni aligned with the demands of the students, promising to persuade the management to reverse the fee.

The monarch alongside thirteen other chiefs at his palace condemned the sudden increment during the “Save Our Soul” visit by the placards carrying students to the palace.

“The Ooni will do something and within the next 24 hours, the fee will be reversed,” he promised.
