Obafemi Awolowo University students on Thursday, February 5th, were fume over the absence of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Vice-Presidential candidate Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

The program was scheduled for 10 am, but started only at 12.30 pm.

The huge crowd including mainly of students left angrily, shouting ‘NO’ when they were said that APC vice-presidential candidate would not be coming.

The over 2,000 seaters capacity hall, which was initially filled up, was left by students.

It was learnt that most of the students hissed out and put on displeased ‎faces and walked out on the person, awaited to stand for Osinbajo.

One of the students, known simply as Jude said the absence of Osinbajo made him unhappy.
He said: “I am one of those that have been canvassing people to come for the interactive session only to hear that he is not coming. This is embarrassing and I am really unhappy with it.”

Another one added, “Almost everyone is angry. We stabbed our classes and felt that we should honour him with our presence but he fumbled. You can imagine the large turn-out of students ‎that came.

“The hall was filled up and some people will have to stand will the increasing turnout. He really needs to apologise to the students. A lot of people are really very angry and dissapointed, I must tell you.”

During his lecture, Dr.Dotun Ogunyemi‎, one of the representative of Osinbajo promised the students that the educational sector in the country would advance if APC is won election. [Punchng.com]
