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!

We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused. The welfare of all Unilorites is our priority and we shall not relent until we rebrand that part of the value system!

KOROPE TRANSPORT FARE BACK TO #50

What better news to end the year for us as a Union than to announce to all students of the University Of Ilorin that the Korope Campus Shuttle fare has been finally restored to #50 for all bus stops from school to Terminus.

We sincerely apologize to our members that this good news didn't come before now and we also apologize for any inconveniences they might have experienced in the last few months due to the increment.

UPDATE ON THE SITUATION AT THE GATE

Some unidentified people came to our campus with a convoy and police envoys to make awareness for a program that has not been approved by the school authority. For a community that is security conscious and takes the safety of students as priority, this kind of unapproved movements is highly prohibited on our campus.

Not only did they failed to follow the due protocol, they were also driving recklessly, without caution. This raised a security concern and these unidentified people were blocked from exiting through the school gate, which subsequently affected the movement of other vehicles to and fro.

As a union that holds the welfare of students in high importance, we proceeded to the gate for two purposes:

i. To see to the movement of commercial vehicles to and fro campus to reduce the congestion at the park and not keep our members stranded on campus. And,

ii. To ensure that the security issue is properly addressed, simply because we cannot allow unidentified persons to roam our campus without checks. The safety of all students is paramount to us.

Thankfully, we were able to achieve our aims as the gate has been opened for passage of vehicles and the unidentified people has been handed over to the security unit.

The situation of the park is now under control and we apologize for the inconvenience this might have caused all our members. The welfare of our students remains our priority and we'll go any length to rebrand that part of the value system.

CBT CA POSTPONEMENT AND ADD 'N' DROP FORM
