HOSTEL ALLOCATION SCAM ALERT

This is to put to the hearing of all students of the prestigious University of Ilorin that there is a false broadcast going round about the availability of bed spaces in some school-owned hostels and asking interested students to contact a particular number!

Despite the constant reminder that bedspaces are neither sellable nor transferrable, it is quite disheartening that some students still fall victim of cheap hostel accommodation frauds.

We are using this medium to announce that hostel allocation, booking, and payment can only be done on the school portal, and any other means is totally illegal and punishable! In general, we urge our members to be vigilant and careful of online deals and transactions!

For any enquiries/confirmation of any information related to the school or any activity on campus, students should contact the following numbers:

Public Relations Officer: 08108678294
President: 08101975556
Welfare Secretary (Main Campus): 07039435760
Welfare Secretary (COHS): 08147343016

COHS: MATTERS ARISING

1. COLLEGE GATE CLOSING TIME EXTENDED

This is to inform all Unilorites and tricyclists (Keke riders) on campus that, as part of this administration's commitment to the welfare of all and sundry on campus, the closing time of the school gate linking Main Campus (PS) to College of Health Sciences campus has been extended by an hour.

We're pleased to make it known to all students and keke operators that the closing time of the gate has been extended from 8pm till 9pm prompt, giving privilege to transportation and economic exercise through the gate till the new closing time.

2. PRICE OF KEKE FROM UITH PARK TO OLD COLLEGE

Also, it has come to our notice that some keke operators are charging #50 from UITH park to Old college instead of the agreed #30, which is a straight deviation from the MOU between the Student Union and keke operators. We have communicated with the leadership of the keke, on which our agreement is to report the defaulters to the necessary quarters for sanctioning.

We want to reiterate that the fare of Keke from UITH park to the Old college is #30 and students should take a picture (ensure the keke number in front is clearly visible) of any keke that's charging above the aforementioned price and report to the Welfare Secretary of COHS via +2348147343016.

Also, any keke which refuses to carry students going to the Main Campus (PS) from COHS without any cogent reasons should also be reported immediately through the same channel!

3. THEFT CASE AT THE SU RELAXATION CENTER

Also, we are embittered to inform distinguished unilorites that our TV and DSTV Decoder at the SU Relaxation Center at Oke-Oyi was stolen on the 9th of November and subsequently being declared missing. We apologize for the late information as this was due to underground investigation in place.

We implore everyone to cooperate with the security agencies as they're executing their duty of maintaining security of all and sundry on campus.

KOROPE TRANSPORTATION FARE; MATTERS ARISING

Firstly, we sincerely apologize to all students for the situation at the park yesterday evening, after which the Korope Transporters refused to convey our members out of school to their various destinations. The actions of the Korope Transporter was simply their reaction to the stand of the Student Union, which was simply to protect our members from unnecessary exploitation.

It is important to remember that the Korope had initially requested for a 100% increment on their fare and the Student Union refused instantly. However, negotiation was initiated, and the outcome was pegged at #50 from PS to Sanrab and #60 for bus stops after Sanrab, which was pended for possible implementation.

Prestigious Unilorites, the protest of the Korope Transporters yesterday morning left us with no option, if we don't want to heap avoidable transportation stress on students and disturb academic activities on campus, than to workout the implementation of the initial #60/#50 agreement; which we did.

But however, the Korope Transporters, after seeing the situation of the park yesterday evening, went haywire and bent on exploiting our students by insisting that all bus stops from PS is #60, which was never discussed on the negotiation table. This inconsiderate decision led to the vehement refusal of the Union to compromise, which was why no Korope was allowed to operate, and we must thank the members of the Union for their show of solidarity yesterday.

In conclusion, the Union was in talks with the leadership of the Korope Transporters yesterday and the #50 From PS-Sanrab/#60 to bus stops after Sanrab fare has been discussed and agreed on. There is going to be a meeting between the Student Union and the Leadership of the Korope this morning to clearly highlight the terms of the agreement and to further state our conditions!

We implore our members to bear with us on this development. Moreover, the School-owned buses will be available to convey students from Terminus to School and vice versa at #30 only. Our members should also note that the Union is not folding hands at the moment, as we are working on possible alternatives to our present means of transportation.

We beseech the better by far students to be peace-loving, calm, and strong, as we embark on this journey to rebrand the value system together.
