Alutanews can exclusively report an alleged ongoing neglect of students’ health problems by the staff of OAU health center. According to some sick students who visited the Obafemi Awolowo University Health Center last night, the staff of the center refused to attend
to them.

According to a student who spoke to Alutanews on condition of anonymity, “I visited the school health center last night on account of headache and fever, but I was denied
attention by the doctor on duty. He said that the health center had
stopped attending to minor illnesses at night”. Our source also alleged that the doctor claimed
that the center only attends to emergency situations at night.
The student in question lamented that he couldn’t sleep throughout the
night due to the illness.
Other students affected expressed dissatisfaction over the situation saying after
paying for health insurance  scheme, they could not enjoy the benefits
attach to the scheme.
In addition, another concerned student also expressed his worries over the
decision made by the management of the health center management, and according to him
“student are to be attended to irrespective of the illness whether
emergency or not, because some illnesses not viewed as emergency can
take one’s life or lead to serious health problem, if not given
immediate attention.
He then urged the management to have a re-think on the decision taken,
saying the negative effect of the decision are more than the positive
