The Debut single, from Dr. T. Olatoberu of the Department of Soil Science and Land Resources Management
The OAU student community, on the night of Friday 5th August 2022, was thrown into a frenzy of excitement and pun following the release of a mysterious link on the WhatsApp platform.
This link, when followed by OAU Kilonshele, led to a YouTube video with a 5-minute recording of a song believed to have emanated from the camp of a lecturer of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.
Investigations were made and it was discovered that the lecturer known as Dr. T. Olatoberu is an active academic staff from the Department of Soil Science and Land Resources Management. Further findings by OAU Kilonshele were made to make this fact credible as the image and details of the YouTube account handle were traced to the university staff portal and a correlation with the details provided was discovered.
As the ongoing ASUU strike enters its 6th month on a ‘No work’ ‘No pay’ condition set by the Federal Government, it is sad yet hilarious to see something of such emanate from an active lecturer victimized by the ‘unbothered’ attitude of the FG.
We hereby call on the Federal Government to resolve this issue as soon as possible so striking academic staff can get back to work and prioritize the education of their students.
It is not every time we see a lecturer turn into a musician amid a crisis. Before things fall apart further and different scenarios start originating, we tender a plea to the FG to do the right thing.
