It was another dramatic event at the parliamentary sitting of the Nigerian Association of Agricultural Students, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun state on Friday, 12th January, 2018.

The sitting which lasted over four hours was presided by the Speaker of the Student Representative Council of Agricultural Students, OAU also referred to as Joint Session Board, Aina Olaoluwa.

The SRC stated that the President Adesope Ibrahim, Financial Secretary , Ajayi Emmanuel, and the  Treasurer, Oloruntunbi Philemon,  could not account for the missing N108,000 in the association’s purse.

The president and other executives were impeached following a majority vote of the parliamentarians after the presentation of the final audit report as at 12th January, 2018.

In a phone conversation with the Speaker, he said, “After thorough scrutinization and questioning, it was discovered that over N108,000 was missing from the association’s account. Hence, the majority of the JSB voted for the impeachment of the three executives involved. They have also been asked to refund the money within a week”.
