Enough Is Enough" - OOU Students Blast SUG Over Failure To Reduce Transport Rates

Number of Students of the Olabisi Onabanjo University have decried at the failure of the Students' Union Government to reduce transportation rates in the University's permanent site that has plunged into high rates since the beginning of the year.

It should be recalled that the General Secretary of the Student Union Transport Committee, Aare Wasiu Hamzat had earlier in January promised that the fare rates would be reduced as soon as the prices of petrol are returned to normal in Ago Iwoye.

The SUG President, Comrade William Adeosun also made similar remarks in an interview with Campus Mirror held earlier this year. However, two weeks after, the petrol now sells at normal rates and nothing seems to have been done.

Campus Mirror caught up with several number of Students who expressed their grievance against the Students' Union Government officials. They criticised the SUG for pursuing a Rebranding Agenda when it should be attending to issues of greater importance like the high cost of transportation.

The last weekend was also married with several writings and online campaigns to protest against the increment of fare rates.

However, it seems the agitation has caught the attention of the Students' Union President who reportedly on Saturday stormed several filling stations in Ago-Iwoye to enforce the sale of Petrol commodity at N145/litre.

A statement issued on Saturday by Presidential Spokesman, Shofoyeke David said that the President mandated all filling stations in Ago-Iwoye to ensure sales of petroleum at the official price or face the wrath of the union.

The statement also revealed that the President has held a meeting with all Transport Drivers which was further adjourned till Monday.
