OAU ATHLETES MARCHED DOWN TO THE DSA BUILDING IN SOLIDARITY AGAINST THE ALLOCATION OF BED SPACES .
Sportsmen converged at the students union building in the afternoon of Tuesday, 30th of May to stage a peaceful protest against the allocation of sports category bed spaces to non athletes, at the Division of Students' affairs building.
In the address of the Students' Union, Director of Sports to the sportsmen, he made it known that the sports-category bed spaces given to non-athletes should be withdrawn by the division in charge. In his words,
'' We are marching to the DSA office to claim what belongs to the sportsmen since they've decided not to yield to the yearnings of the athletes. ''
On getting to the Division of Students' affairs building, the athletes expressed their grievances and were attended to by a senior staff of the department. The man stated it emphatically that something will be done as regards their accommodation. He said,
"The dean is not around presently as she is at her inauguration as a commissioner of Osun state. The vice dean is not around as well, but both of them should be back by tomorrow. So be rest assured that your case will be attended to by tomorrow."
The sportsmen then informed the division that they are going to halls of residence to evict occupants in the sports category. This was followed by an eviction notice pasted on the door rooms of the affected rooms which are mainly in Fajuyi hall and Akintola hall, thereby giving occupants the ultimatum of 24hrs to vacate those bed spaces.
