Student Leaders’ Alliance of Nigeria (SLAN) has
passed a vote of confidence on the outgoing
Vice-Chancellor (VC) » of Obafemi Awolowo
University (OAU) in Ile-Ife, Osun State, Prof
Bamitale Omole.
The group, which comprised former students’
union leaders of higher institutions, condemned
recent diatribe against the VC, saying people
behind the attack knew nothing about
administering the university.
TheNation reports that in a statement by SLAN’s
international coordinator, Oluwaloseyi Babaeko ,
the group said Omole deserved the
commendation for improving the academic
standard of the school, adding that the global
rating of OAU increased under the leadership of
the outgoing VC.

Babaeko, a Master’s student at the School of
Politics and International Studies at the
University of Leeds in United Kingdom, said: “ The
call for the arrest and probe of Prof Omole shows
desperation for vendetta among the faceless
people, who do not like developments brought
about by the outgoing VC. Their argument is not
only shallow; it is laughable, baseless and lacks
merit .”
“ The propaganda against Prof Omole shows that
the faceless people have no knowledge of history.
Rather, Prof. Bamitale Omole deserves our respect
and prayers. The misguided elements want to
disparage and destroy the hard-earned reputation
of Prof Omole through their parochial agenda. We
condemn such act in its entirety.”
The VC, Babaeko said, runs an open-door policy
and makes his personal phone number available
to all students.
“ For those of us who have been following and
monitoring the activities of the VC, we are pleased
to say it anywhere that Prof Omole has done well
in administering OAU, despite the time frame. We
plead with the VC to forgive those wicked
individuals who want to rubbish his name. Prof
Omole should act like a father. ”
SLAN also called for improved funding for the
university, saying OAU needed resources to
maintain its academic standard. The group
appealed to the VC to reinstate all suspended
students’ leaders.
