OAU cancels automatic employment for First Class graduates

According to the Vice-Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Bamitale Omole, the university can no longer 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.

There were mixed reactions on the decision of the university to stop 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.’
