Following the report of the proscription of Obafemi Awolowo University Students’ Union, the Vice Chancellor of institution, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede has explained that the universities only suspended union activities pending the resolution of the crisis in the union.

Ogunbodede in a telephone conversation with our reporter said the management had no choice than to suspend the union activities to avoid full blown crisis that is capable of compromising the peace of the university.

He explained that the suspension was paramount after several report of fight amongst the union officers and also to allow the tenure of the present leaders pass away.

The VC however assured that if the students settled their differences, the union activities will be reinstated soon and enjoined students of the institution to see the citadel of learning a model to various institutions in spite of the poor conduct of the union leadership.
