HEARTFELT CONDOLENCE; THE NEED FOR A 'UNILORIN EMERGENCY RESPONSE CENTER' OFF CAMPUS
It is with a heavy heart that we extend our hands of condolence to the family, relatives, and friends of AbdulWahab, who was a 400l student of science education and a final year student of the University of Ilorin before he gave up the ghost in the early hours of Monday.
We pray that the Almighty God, who created us on this earth and will eventually take us out of it, grant the deceased eternal Paradise and May He also grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss. This is indeed a great loss to the Student Union, the University community, and the nation at large because one of the future stars just departed.
Esteemed Unilorites, we are aware of the circumstances surrounding the death and our investigations revealed that the deceased died before arriving at the school clinic. Also, from the account given by the student who was challenged on dress code matter, the questions on his mode of dressing did not in anyway disturb the medical attention offered to the victim. He confirmed that the deceased was being attended to inside in clinic, while he was questioned outside by the Director, who at the point was unaware of any affiliation between the deceased and the accused. In fact, the Student Union President is a friend of the deceased and the challenged person and he was still with them a night before the incident.
We have requested that a Unilorin emergency response center be provided off campus where emergency cases can be addressed to increase the chances of patients survival. We also appealed to the Director of Health services to improve the quality of service and attention given to emergency cases as disturbing concerns have been reported repeatedly to the Union.
Dearest colleagues, we pray for the deceased and the union remains committed to serving her members in the best way possible.
RIP Abdulwahab, we go see again!
