OSOGBO—THE Ooni of Ife , Oba Okunade Sijuade, has waded into the face-off between the students of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, Osun State and the management over the hike in the tuition.

The Ooni, who was represented by his second in command, High Chief Lowa, the Adimula of Ife while addressing the students during their protest that led to the blockage of the roads linking Ife with other communities, aligned with the demands of the students, promising to persuade the management to reverse the fee.

Oba Okunade alongside thirteen other chiefs at the palace condemned the sudden increment during the “Save Our Soul” visit by the placards carrying students to the palace.
“The Ooni will do something and within the next 24 hours, the fee will be reversed,” he said
