NO Automatic Employment for First Class graduates – Obafemi Awolowo University

Educational New Reaching our desk is that Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Bamitale Omole has released new statement concerning their First Class graduates.

In the statement released, OAU Board of Management agrees not to give automatic jobs to First Class graduating students in line with its tradition. This is because of the economic down turn, which has affected the university’s finances.

This statement was being accompanied by Vice-Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Bamitale Omole. The news is a little bit strange, but we pray it is being revised automatically.

Meanwhile, according to the source, the university has mixed reactions on the decision stopping the automatic employment scheme. While some students saw it as unfair and inconsistent, others supported the school’s decision. Some argued that ‘it was an error to think that only a First Class graduate could better impact the needed academic knowledge.’
