Following student protests over Miss Adesina’s murder, the university administration ordered the campus to be closed indefinitely on October 1.

The university’s public relations officer, Abiodun Olanrewaju, issued a statement saying that the administration “understands the pain at the loss of the student, but will not allow the students’ ongoing and uncontrolled protest.”

The Management recognizes the pain felt by the community as a result of this early death, and sympathizes with the parents, friends, colleagues, and all university students on this tragic loss, and prays for the repose of her soul.

“However, management strongly condemns the students’ unbridled brigandage, blocking the Ife/Ibadan and Ife/Ede highways and other adjoining roads that could be used as alternative routes, and engaging in other acts that are detrimental to their health and the safety of the general public,” the statement read.

In order to restore normalcy to the campus, the statement also instructed students to vacate their residence halls.

“As a result, after exhausting all required avenues to bring the students to order and restore normalcy to the Campus and its environs, the administration of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, have closed the School until further notice.” This is to prevent more law and order breakdowns.

However, in the wee hours of today, Inside OAU Innovation gathered from an inside exclusive source that there will be a scheduled senate meeting on Wednesday, October 20th, 2021.
The meeting is set to evolve around the resumption and continuation of the rain semester that was put to an abrupt hold.

According to the source, the school management seeks to bring the indefinite closure of school to an end very soon and that the senate meeting will set the basis of when resumption will be fixed. It was gathered that the plausible dates are on the 25th of this month or the early days of November.

These past few weeks on Obafemi Awolowo University Campus have been weeks of momentum activities characterized by political tensions.

There have been series of campaigns, propaganda, rallies, caracade, debates etc., all geared towards deciding who would anchor the fate and the face of political positions of the Great Student Union body.


However, the whole procedural activities of politicking will be coming to an end tomorrow, 1st of September, 2021.


After the Manifestoes Session that went by today at Amphitheater and later at Oduduwa for convenience and operationalization ease, the modalities of the forthcoming elections were made known by the Anchor of the Manifesto Session and the Electoral Chairman of Obafemi Awolowo University Students’ Union, Efem Castro.


It was announced that the voting process will kickstart by 9am tomorrow which happens to be on Wednesday, 1st of September, 2021. It was also made known that the venue for the exercitation of the voting right of students would be at each faculty i.e. there would be polling units at all the 13 faculties in the prestigious University of Obafemi Awolowo.

I am sure you are wondering what is there to Father’s Day that I don’t know already that this post will be mentioning or is there more to Father’s Day that I am not aware of ni abi Father’s Day too want to be doing multiplicities like Mother’s Day ni?
No, Dear reader, Father’s Day will not be doing multiplicities of holidays like Mother’s day. This post will be bringing to your cognizance the historical background of Father’s day and how it came about to be a day of reckoning worldwide.


Father’s Day is a day dedicated to honoring fathers, paternal connections, and the important role fathers play in society.
It is celebrated on the third Sunday of June.

It is the day when one realizes the significance of a father’s role in one’s life. Children buy or produce gifts, as well as write-ups and draw cards, to express their affection for their fathers or father-like people.
Father’s Day acknowledges and celebrates the contribution of fathers to their own families and society at large. On this day, children get a chance to appreciate their fathers and father figures -all the people who have played a vital role in their lives.

I’m sure at this point you are probably like “Okay?” “I know this already” “abi this writer is playing with my feelings”
Dear reader “No vex”. I am aware you know this already I’m just using style style to test your familiar waters so as to get you along with the rest of the plot.

Oya let me put you on an unfamiliar scale. Shebi that’s why you are in the first place right.? I am sure you nodded responsively to that and if you didn’t, I guess your head is stiff this Sunday Afternoon niyen o



Let’s get into it.
Did you know that Fathers day was birthed out from the perspective of Mother’s day? Don’t goan start thinking Women are the backbone and originator of everything like that o because of this fact o. Maybe they are, maybe they are not. Well, today’s is not the day for that duel.


So, Mother’s Day was founded by Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, whose mother had created women’s associations to encourage friendship and health. She held a memorial service at her late mother’s church in Grafton, West Virginia, on May 12, 1907 to honour her. However, Mother’s Day did not become a commercial holiday until 1908.

Within five years, almost every state had adopted the day, and in 1914, the U.S. President, Woodrow Wilson declared it national holiday.

I didn’t want to state this fact at first because I know the female gender will start feeling themselves again but then, I can’t possibly hoard this fact, lest the post wouldn’t be comprehensive enough.


Unlike Mother’s day that was geared and facilitated by a woman did you know that Father’s day wasn’t initiated or created by a man but by a woman?
Now you know! And if you are lady or woman reading this don’t let your head starts swelling o.
I know it’s 2-0. Let’s leave it at that.



In respect to this , Sonora Smart Dodd initiated what we know today as Father’s Day in the United States. Sonora’s father was Civil War soldier William Jackson Smart, an Arkansas single parent who raised six children selflessly. Sonora had heard of Anna Jarvis’s Mother’s Day, which she had made in memory of her mother.

As a result, she suggested to her pastor that something similar be done to honor fathers. The church had negated her suggestion so she circulated a petition around town and then got the support of the locals YMCA and the Spokane Ministerial Association.

On June 19, 1910, the Protestant churches of Spokane observed their first Father’s Day. There were fatherhood-themed sermons, and churches awarded bouquets to men who were the oldest men in the congregation, or the father with the most children, or with the youngest child.

The widely publicized events in Spokane struck a chord in Washington, D.C., and Sonora’s celebration paved the way for the proposal to become a national holiday.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson and his family personally observed the day.


Eight years later, President Calvin Coolidge signed a resolution in favor of Father’s Day “to establish more intimate relations between fathers and their children and to impress upon fathers the full measure of their obligations.”


In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed an executive order that the holiday be celebrated on the third Sunday in June.


Under President Richard Nixon, in 1972, Congress passed an act officially making Father’s Day a national holiday. (Six years later, Sonora died at age 96.)



So that’s how we came about Father’s day.
Before you close this page and swipe your browser from your recent openings, I have some mini facts for you regarding to Father’s Day.


Did you know that Father’s Day is not celebrated on every Third Sunday of June in all countries?
The reason is not far fetched, some countries would always do strong head.


Anyways in traditionally Catholic countries such as Spain and Portugal, Father’s Day is observed on March 19, the Feast of St. Joseph.


Also the Taiwanese celebrate Father’s Day on August 8—the eighth day of the eighth month—because the Mandarin Chinese word for eight sounds like the word for “Papa.”


While In Thailand, Father’s Day is celebrated on former King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s birthday, December 5.

Alright, there you go. You can leave the page.
Oh! Sorry. I know you are angry but give me few secs to tell you that you should appreciate anyone that has played a fatherly role in your life. I am sure they love you♥️.

I came across a very hilarious meme recently, it reads;
They say hard times pass, but this hard time doesn’t want to pass again”. And trust Twitter folks, this meme was accompanied with the perfect image for it.

Of course, when I saw it, I laughed out because it was really funny, and it was something I could relate to. In fact, I’m sure you can relate. Absolutely!
You know, with every phase of our lives, comes the darkest hours. These “darkest hours” are times filled with anxiety, burdens, pressure, amongst others, and as humans, we are prey to them.
I mean, they feed on our consciousness in order to gain existence and prominence, and they’d only cease to exist, depending on how well we are able to handle our emotions when reacting to them.

Be reliably apprised that this post wasn’t composed in a bid to overfeed you with what you’ve already gotten over the years. We’ve all had enough of the “Aspire to Perspire so that you don’t expire” kinda talks. So, I wouldn’t be replicating that here. We’d be going point blank in this post. Just like Deadshot, we hope not to miss our target 🎯.

So, we know how the elements of these darkest hours work (anxiety and the likes), how then do we go about battling them? Are we calling the Dothrakis, or the unyielding 300 Spartan warriors to stage a war against our darkest hours so that we can have a balanced lifestyle?
The sad answer to that is, NO!
They wouldn’t come down to help us prevail over them, but certainly, there are tips on how to go about it, thus, leaving you with a balanced lifestyle.

Follow through to learn these tips!



1. First, Identify the ‘bad belle’:
The first step towards relief when you’re choked is to identify the activities or factors that make you get choked up. So, your first actions should be geared towards identifying them.

Trust me, I wouldn’t give you BoBo without the straw. What am I driving at? I won’t tell you that Identifying them is easy OR that you have to look inwards to notice them; YINMU! It doesn’t come that easy.
That’s why when you ask someone with a similar issue to tell you the causes of their gloominess, they’d often times answer with “I don’t know jare” or “Nothing, I am just feeling somehow”.
The truth is that they have yet to fathom the ‘bad belle’ that is facilitating that gloomy atmosphere around them.

That said, to cut the long story short, you’d need to answer what I call the “WH questions” to identify the ‘bad belle’. These “WH questions” are questions like; “When? Where? What? and Who?” When do you usually feel choked up? Where does it often happen? What exactly happened? With whom did this happen? Who is the cause?

Answering these, you’d have an overall background to the causes of your darkest hours.



2. Filtering your activities:
One thing that gets us boxed up is the thought that we can do everything and anything. Yes, I know, that you are a champion, and that even through Christ that strengthens you, you can do everything.

Yes, you can do everything. But can your psychological state keep up with doing everything? Can your mental health gain stability with all the stress? (You should answer that)

Often times, we don’t choose to have so many responsibilities but due to some unavoidable circumstances, we get ourselves boxed up doing so many things so that people don’t think that we are incompetent or ineffective, so we want to get them done at all means.

What we don’t know is that too much of responsibilities result in exhaustion, stress, and by extension, frustration.

However, the second way to have a balanced lifestyle is filtering your activities.
What are the things you can do conveniently without stress?
Sort the most pressing ones from the less important tasks? Create a to-do list. It doesn’t make you uptight, it only sets the direction.



3. Don’t “learn” to say No. Say No:
It is not only to premature sex that you should say No. Nah! We should also say a big NO to things that we can’t do, to things that would throw us off balance. Often times, we harken to situations based on pressure and in our bid to please others. It shouldn’t be so. Say NO in the best humble way to things you can’t do. If you can do them without any hitch, you can say YES. But if you can’t, “Mai dear” don’t hesitate. If you happen to say “YES” in spite of your tight schedules and inconveniences, it will get to the point where pressure will be mounted on you for results. So to avoid stories that touch, simply say No.




4. Don’t kill yourself, schedule time for yourself:
You may be thinking that I’m asking you to condone laziness or to be less productive when chasing your dreams and aspirations.
No, that’s not it.

As humans, we are more susceptible and more vulnerable to reach our breaking points. So, why not prevent that?
Out of all your responsibilities, schedule a day or time for yourself. As much as you are intentional about your Career or Job, be intentional about your health too. Be intentional about sleeping, about working out, about having fun. Masturdate!!

You can take a One-day break from the hassles of your thoughts to see a Movie, listen to songs, talk to people, or do exercises. All these go a long way in maintaining a balanced life. Check around this blog for mini exercises you can do to keep you up and doing). You could as well try a new recipe or something you learnt online, you may even read a book. Just be intentional about it! It doesn’t have to sprout as a result of pressure.


The sad reality is that there would always be responsibilities, and there must be someone to do them. That person is probably you.
It’s a lifelong cycle that can only be broken until we give up the ghost (My dear friend, don’t kick the bucket).

The thing is even after retirement, there will always be something we need to do, which is a good thing.

The joy is that we have a say in how we spend our lifetime, what activities we participate in, and who we associate with.
Recognize the indications that your life is out of balance, and take measures to reclaim your sense of control and life balance today.
You can be the Hercules of the battle and can win, as long as you reclaim your sense of control and emotions.

By their very nature, slang words are transient and limited to specific age groups, subcultures, and eras. However, a few slang terms survive and make the leap from obscurity to respectable popular usage.

Slangs are so common among Nigerian students on campuses that some of them have become mainstream, paving the way for what many consider to be Nigerian English.
From one campus to the next, these slangs differ.
Obafemi Awolowo University students are well-known for using words that are only understood by them. Some of the words are listed below.

1. Shana/ Ige iwe:

It is one of the most frequently used slangs by students. It used to refer to someone that’s intellectually sound or reads a lot. Often times, it transcends to being a teasing word to make them feel good or fly by themselves. You might just be walking around Library, not necessarily there to read and the next thing you’d hear is “Ayo na Shana o or igi iwe. By its nature, it almost becoming a permanent social word for OAU students.



2. GP dey twerk or dey shake: Although a funny one it doesn’t connote a positive remark. It means a low in one’s Grade point. Often people say it as comic relief to the situation of a bad GP. So if your GP dey twerk it means it not in its strong state or currently constant, it still fluctuating. E good make person GP no twerk ooo.


3. Won ti sha mi: Related to the GP dey twerk. “Won ti sha mi” is more like an antecedent to “GP dey shake” in the sense that “won ti sha mi” means you’ve been marked down or graded low. So in such light, if you get “shaed” by lectures it automatically transient to a twerking GP. Often times students complain of getting “shaed” by their lecturers. Guess it a tradition that most OAU lecturers are upholding quite highly; “To Sha”

4. Dub: This is used by people or cliques that have “men I trust”. Dub is a form of malpractices that involves copying your friends or fellow examinee’s work or sheets. It quite rampant in OAU because no students want to fail or to get shaed. Frequently used during exam periods, you are more often to hear the statement “No go far o, na you I wan dub o”

5. Men I trust: A recent slang in the environs of OAU, it was coined from the Film Series; Peaky Blinders. Men I trust is a slang word that means clique or gees that are liable, available, and ready to help one during an examination or test. Men I trust are so important to some students because with the men they trust everything is achievable in the exam hall. It is worthy to know that men are trust is not a gender-inclined statement, it is used by all.


6. Road 1: Literally, it means the road to campus entrance but its figuratively meaning is going back home to where you came from (expulsion or suspension). It is often used by the school’s management to indict fear or as a corrective measure on students to tell them if any misdeed is done they’d be sent back home; to road 1.

7. Town: Anywhere outside the confines of Obafemi Awolowo University is regarded as “Town.” You’d often hear it from public transport services that “Are you going to town?. That’s their way of saying are you going to anywhere outside the campus gate.

8. Maximum Shishi: It means premium package of punishment from students. Maximum Shishi is done by students to show their grievance to an act of another in form of punishment often times beating and naked patrolling of the person.

9. Spagewa: O mighty mother of Grace. Spagewa is a special delicacy of most OAU students. It is the mixture of spaghetti and beans in a Jollof recipe manner. It sure hits like heaven and as well stomach-filling. It can be deduced that about 70% of OAU students have gone through the phase of spagewa culinary cooking spree.

10. Floor O: It a slang word to mean the detention center of OAU. It is popularly believed that any law abuser or offender is automatically taken to Floor O for reprimand or scrutinization. The good students don’t really like the sound of the word “Floor O” lest they are hearing gist or doing amebo low-key (when not involved).


11. Aro: It one of the traditions that has become part and parcel of OAU students. It a generational tradition. Aro is an act of teasing or mocking someone. Often times it annoying and pesky by nature.

12. Awo Boys or Omo Awo: it was naturally meant to mean Students that reside in Awo Hostel. However due to the fact that over the years Awo Students have been known for their teasing and playful nature, hence anyone that involves in Aro or teasing someone or hyping is automatically called an Awo boy. It doesn’t mean someone from Awo anymore it has taken a social meaning of representing students who partake in Aro.

13. Tan Gboro: It means all commuter buses that plow the road of Town down to inside campus. It a shorten term from Town-Igboro but to help in its pronunciation the syllables were shortened to Two i.e Tan Gboro.

14. Moz101 or Catch dem young: It an act of getting along with fresh or newly admitted female students. Mozambique is a female hostel exclusively for Part 1 students. So Moz 101 is like a dedicated mission or course of study (5 units) for senior colleagues that want to woo newly admitted ladies.

15. Jacking: It an act of reading. You’d probably would have heard millions of times someone saying “I want to Goan jack”, it means I want to go and read

16. Jackobian: Someone that involves in the act of reading. If you are a jackobian then you are a passionate reader.

17. Jambite: It a slang to refer to newly admitted students in the University. Being a greenhorn to the system they are often times called Jambite

18. As e dey hot & Risky Burger: These are food-related slangs As e dey hot is more of a brand name than a slang. As e dey hot is a slang for puff-puff that’s always served hot. You can never catch the puff-puff in its dulling mode while Risky Burger is bread and fried egg done In a special way. If you are an OAU student reading this then you know the hook already but if you are a non-OAU student, you might want to come around to have a perfect savory picture of these two meals.

19. Dobale: It a slang directed towards guest artists when they seek to perform in the University. Dobale means to prostate. Whenever an artist intends to perform, it is a tradition for the artiste to first prostrate before going ahead with his performance. If he or she fails to do so there’s be shouts of Dobale everywhere.

20. Go for overnight: On normal grounds when one hears this, one would think the person that said it, meant he or she is going for a vigil or has a program to attend overnight. However, what it means in OAU is going to read for the night, probably till down. It a common saying in OAU..

Other slangs are used predominantly in OAU that are not exclusively skewed to OAU students only. Slangs like E choke, mafo, sapa, who dey breet, ko purr ke among many others are used by OAU students too.

TEJULIVE: I thank God there is an undergraduate stage. I must say I am so grateful for it. That was where the vision began, I met a different set of people from which I drew inspiration from.

When I eventually pulled off the motorcycle and a new phone for one of the Oau school bike men

It’s fortunate and unfortunate
We’ve wasted a year at home and maybe it’s just a measure to ensure that we cover up due to COVID 19 which is still very much around
Then again, not everyone is privilege
Some don’t even have browsing phones, money for data? And the likes
Really pathetic
Talk about the poor network reception
There are lots of factors affecting the online classes that doesn’t make it sound reasonable
Those that do not have access to the internet
What happens to them?? They fail? There has to be a re-evaluation of this

We’ll do physical exams and virtual classes?? It’s a No no for me
