The acting Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Saburi Adesanya, stated this on Thursday while addressing journalists in Abeokuta.

According to Adesanya, the university has now concluded plans to present the certificates  to the graduands at the  ceremony billed for between October 8 and 9.

The acting Vice-Chancellor, however, said, the university had not admitted more than the number of students permitted by law.

Adesanya noted that the institution currently has 15,000 student population, adding that it had yet to meet the 4, 370  admission quota granted it by the National  Universities Commission.

He also assured stakeholders that the OOU management had resolved to publish the names of its students in order to clear the air on the population of the students it has offered admission.

The acting Vice-Chancellor also blamed the rising wave of cultism in the higher institution on off-campus system.
