POWER AND WATER SUPPLY ON CAMPUS

The power and water supply problem which has been prevalent for the last few days in hostels is no doubt an ugly situation which we all share in. It is no doubt an extension of the deplorable state of the country.

As a responsible administration, we are not oblivious of the inconveniences this hideous situation has posed on Unilorites and as such, it is necessary to completely eliminate this problem and restore normalcy.

It is with this conviction that we alongside the Student Affairs Unit visited every halls in every hostels few days back to explain the situation to the hostelites, appease and calm them down while also promising them of a speedy resolution to these issues.

In a further show of our commitment, we made sure power was restored and in the early hours of yesterday, alongside the Student Affairs Unit made alternative provisions to supply water for use in hostels via water tankers pending when water will be pumped efficiently for consumption.

In addition, we visited the water plants to assess the state of things and also ensure the immediate purification and distribution of water across all hostels on campus. Also, we made sure power was restored and the state of incessant power failure becomes a thing of the past.

We hereby express our gratitude to University Management for the efforts put in place in mitigating the situation and also Unilorites for their patience and perseverance in this period.
