UPDATE ON WATER SUPPLY ON CAMPUS

Excellent Unilorites,

We are delighted to inform you that, following a series of crucial meetings with the University management and the invaluable intervention of the Student Affairs Unit, significant progress has been made in addressing the ongoing water supply issues on campus.

The school management will conduct a thorough inspection of all hostels to ensure the effective implementation of these plans. Additionally, the University management has initiated a plan to install water tanks in hostels to expedite access to water. We are also collaborating with the Kwara State Government to restore a normal and sustainable water supply to the hostels and the University at large.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation thus far. Rest assured that we remain committed to ensuring your wellbeing and will continue to work tirelessly to resolve this issue.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE CURRENT STATUS OF ELECTRICITY AND WATER SUPPLY ON CAMPUS

Excellent Unilorites,

We acknowledge the campus-wide power outage since Thursday, May 30th, 2024, stemming from a major fault attributed to the electricity company. This unfortunate incident has resulted in the unavailability of water on campus.

Despite efforts by the University Vice Chancellor to address the electricity issue today, it was thwarted by the ongoing nationwide strike action by the NUC.

The Works Department has been actively working on providing generators to power and pump water in the university community.

All hostels are required to ensure power supply is available both in the morning and at night for the residents pending the time electricity will be fully restored. Please rest assured that electricity will be promptly restored on campus once the strike action concludes.

We understand the difficulties you are facing and sincerely appreciate your perseverance during this challenging time.
