after actor Mr. Macaroni explained why he was expelled from Redeemer’s
University, some Nigerian celebrities have taken to social media to
plead on behalf of the actor who called out his VC on Facebook.
Several Celebrities including Banky W and
OAP, Dotun of Cool FM, have reacted to the expulsion of Mr. Macroni,
asking the school to redirect the dismissal of the young actor.
Redeemers University dealt one of their students, Actor, and entertainer Debo Adedayo aka Mr Macaroni, a heavy blow when they expelled him days before his graduation over a post he made on his Facebook page.
According to the university, Debo’s Facebook post was offensive and
portrayed the university in bad light, an act that constitutes serious
misconduct and punishable by expulsion.
A crushed Debo Adebayo took to his Instagram page to share his pain:
Most of you would observe that I have been silent about Redeemer’s
University lately. For those of you who know about my University life,
most of you called me and sent me series of text messages 2 weeks ago
asking why I didn’t go for my convocation.. this and that… as it was
quite clear that I should have graduated in flying colors.
Well, the management of Redeemer’s University denied me of my joy
that day. I had waited so long for that day, and while waiting, I
served Redeemer’s University with all my life.
First as Social Director in my 300Level and then as President of
both the student association and the graduating class. I ask anyone
reading this to call anyone he or she knows in Redeemer’s University
including the management that dislikes me so much and ask who Debo
Adedayo (Mr Macaroni) is.
If they will speak the truth with the fear of God, they will tell
you that I served the University with all my life and heart. I can’t
plunge into the achievements of my administration in Redeemer’s
University because you will get tired. I used everything that God
blessed me with to promote Redeemer’s University.
I left Redeemer’s University a debtor. All my life savings was
used in paying school fees for other students and making sure students
were at least comfortable in the most possible way. Please just ask around.
For me, leadership was and still is service, selflessness
and sacrifice through discipline, integrity and accountability to those
we as leaders claim to be of service to and by God’s grace in whose
name I swear, this was what I stood for.
I wrote my final exams, defended my project and was awaiting
convocation when I was summoned by the management of the University
saying I posted certain things that put the University in bad light.
In all my posts, I never mentioned the name of the University nor
the name of any of her official. Yet on the 12th of this month, I
received a letter of Expulsion for this supposed reason. I have been
patient enough with the management of the University.
That I wasn’t given the joy to graduate on that day I waited
patiently for broke my heart. Yet, I was willing to let that go out of
love for my University.
Now look what I have been greeted with. I am trying to understand
the reasons behind this action by the mgt of the University. Could it
be because for the first time in history, my administration
refused to give the Vice-Chancellor and Director of Student affairs
awards on our students appreciation day as we reached the conclusion that they didn’t deserve it?
Or could it be because my administration fought passionately for
students rights; food, water, light scarcity? Could it be because I
stood for the rights of students when they were falsely accused of
defrauding the University….. the list is endless as I am still trying to
help the University find a reason for her action.
I can go on and on, but I would simply rest my case for now as my
parents have decided to take legal action against the management of the
I am bringing this to your attention because of the concern you
have all shown and also so that everyone I have advertised Redeemer’s
University to can see how exactly I am being paid back for my
You haven’t heard the last of this. Thank you. P.S: all comments
