PHOTO: Governor Amosun Of Ogun Stoned By TASUED Students As He Ran For Cover



The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun while on a campaign visit to Tai Solarin University Of Education, Ijebu-ode on Thursday, 29th January was attacked by some angry students of the State-owned university who appeared not to have forgiven him over his numerous attempts to initially scrap the institution.

On his arrival to the institution, TASUED students on campus who became aware of his presence immediately trooped out in large numbers.

Initially, it appeared to the Governor and his campaign team the students had gathered to cheer them.

There was a wind of change when some students hurriedly brought out sachets water (pure water) and in a jiffy, it became a chorused act as other furious students joined in stoning Governor Ibikunle Amosun with various objects they could lay their hands on.

The Governor became ruffled before he was able to run to safety and quickly drove off with his convoy.

Before now, Amosun had been against the existence of the university, giving reason that two state universities were too much for his administration to handle. This led to various protests by students of TASUED, as well as the death of a student leader, Com. Tunji Fashina.

Also, Nigerian Universities Commission, NUC as a result of Amosun’s refusal to adequately fund TASUED delisted courses offered in the university from 48 to 23.

Just recently, Accounting course got delisted as a course in TASUED.

This development has left many students frustrated.

DAILY POST has gathered that TASUED Vice Chancellor, Prof. Oluyemisi Obilade is seen as an accomplice as she remains undisturbed with the various happenings in the school system.
