Passionate Unilorites,

ELECTRICITY SITUATION AT COHS

It is only proper that the leadership of the Student Union apologize to our students in the College of Health Sciences, Oke-Oyi, for the non-availability of electricity on their campus. We want to assure you that we have received your complaints and we feel your pain. We are already looking into ways of improvising, but we were made to know that those in charge of the Generator are also affected by the ongoing NASU/SSANU strike.

To alleviate the situation, the leadership of the union is currently making efforts to provide alternative electricity at the SU Recreation Centre tomorrow, so that our better by far students can at least charge their gadgets till power is restored! The time and duration shall be communicated as soon as possible.

We know the importance of electricity to our students and their activities, and we shall not relent until the situation returns to normalcy.

We are determined together not to just invest but rebrand the value system.

Please be rest assured that we are already in contact with the necessary quarters and we promise to bring you progressive information as soon as possible.

POLICE DISTURBANCE

We are not unaware of the recent disturbances by men of the Police Force, especially FSARS in some areas off campus.

At some points in the course of the administration, we had interactions with the principals of the Command and this yielded fruits as the disturbances reduced drastically.

It has however in recent times become obvious that there seems to be a new invasion by these men.

We believe that this development is due to changes in the leadership structure of these men and we shall again seek redress on the matter.

This does not however mean that we support any form of illegal practices by students. Also, The Police Force can do their work but it must be within the provisions of the law, and without undue harassment and extortion of students.

Pending when we get a firm resolve, the PPRO of the Kwara Police Command has given us a nod to report any of their officers who makes attempts to extort us or challenge us unnecessarily.

What we require of you is to try to get the names of anyone of them that harasses you or any other forms of evidence and get it across to us.
We assure you that we will get them to the Command.

GSE301 RESULTS ISSUE:

We received with shock, news of GSE301 results of students changing on the portal. This is really surprising, especially coming at this time. We recall that late last year, there were several issues with the results and when it became very obvious, we made interventions and we were asked to generate information of those who had complains about the result.

After the intervention, the results of many students were corrected and upgraded. It therefore baffles us why after almost a year, the results change back to what they were.

We however wish to inform you that all hands are now on deck and we are working on getting to the root of the matter. We shall update members of the Union once there is new development.

While the consultations are going on, we wish that you all be calm.

CBT EXAM SCHEDULE

Following the incidence at the CBT centre last week Friday, we have worked cohesively with concerned University officials in keeping the organisation of exams and preventing unnecessary crisis.

To this end, the examinations on this Friday (19/07/19) have been scheduled with time and the document will be in circulation.

We implore students to kindly follow the schedule strictly. The schedule has been made with consideration of the number of people having exams and the time alloted for the courses and we believe that everything will go fine if the schedule is maintained.

Also, students should note that they are not to be around the CBT centre until the time for their respective courses. We also wish to advise members of the Union against going late for CBT exams.

The need for more organisation at the centre has made it necessary to strictly follow the schedules, hence those who come late for their examinations may not be allowed into the examination. Concerned Student should endeavour to show up at the centre at the exact time their courses are scheduled for.

LATEST ON CBT: NO DEATH RECORDED; SITUATION UNDER CONTROL

The leadership of the Students' Union is saddened with the rumors going round that some students of the University of Ilorin lost their precious lives at the CBT Centre today. While it is true that some students lost consciousness, however no death or any near-death situations were recorded.

Unilorites, we sincerely apologize for the discomfort experienced at the CBT Centres today, and we already contacted the appropriate bodies to ensure that such bad occurrence does not repeat itself. Immediately we received the reports, we contacted the necessary units and school officials, made necessary consultation and consolidations, all in a bid to ensure that our grievances are registered.

The affected students have received medical attention and majority of them have already been discharged. We hereby reassure unilorites that they still remain our utmost priority and at such, we won't relent from making their welfarism our priority.

We also beseech all students of the University of Ilorin to remain calm, debunk the deathly rumours, and be rest assured that everything is under control.

GNS 312 TEST TO HOLD NEXT WEEK FRIDAY

The Student Union is pleased to keep all concerned students abreast of the new development trailing the GNS 312 Continuous Assessment, in contrary to the initial report circulated few days ago.

It would be recalled that a memo was released from the Student Union few days ago that both the Continuous Assessment of GNS 212 and GNS 312 would be taken on the exam day of the respective papers, due to some technical and logistics issues.

According to the Director of GNS of the University, every registered student for only GNS 312 who are on campus are expected to be prepared and make themselves available for the test which has now been rescheduled to Friday 14th of June, 2019.

However, concerned students who are on Industrial Training and some other programs would be required to sit for the test immediately after their resumption on campus, while schedule for the test would be communicated soon.

We implore all the registered students to take note of the new development, while beseeching all and sundry to keep their friends, brothers and sisters abreast of the new dates set for the exercise.

Please, note that this new development does not affect GNS212 test, as the arrangement for the exercise remains as it stands.

SECURITY CONSCIOUSNESS: OUR COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY

As we all know it's rainy season. The cloud wails more often, and the drops instead germinate the dying leaves around and make everywhere bushy afterwards. As a result, the usual pathways to our various destinations are blocked and seemed scarily to ply again.

The repercussion of this is that, in a period like this, dangerous reptiles take the advantage of the climatic condition to harm innocent people. On campus, some days back we sadly got the news of a student bitten by snake at night.

We wish to implore us to be security conscious as we move to and fro on campus at any point in time. Especially at night, it is advisable that we always move with our torch light. We need to be more careful with where we go and where the route we ply to our destinations.

While works are underway to clear the grown bushes in and around the premises, we beseech our members to heed to this candid advise and be more vigilant with our steps anywhere, anytime because prevention is better than cure.

EID MUBARAK TO ALL MUSLIM FAITHFULS

Following the sighting of the crescent of Shaawal month yesterday, the Students' Union is using this medium to congratulate all our Muslim Brothers in the University over the Eid-il-fitr celebration.

We wish to urge you to utilise this festive period to pray to the Almighty Allah to grant us the blessings of the just concluded Ramadan, provide for us, our parents, guide and elevate us, and shower us His mercies as we continue the pursuits of our academic excellence.

As this year Ramadan is gone, we want to beseech us all to continue to reflect and leverage on the spiritual benefits gained therein. May Allah accept all our supplications and offerings in the just concluded Ramadan as an act of Ibadah. Amin.

All Faculties are expected to take part in virtually all the available sports, except on occasions when players are not provided for a particular game by the participating team(s), as they would be locking horns to win Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in different encounters promised to be more transparent, lively, interesting and enthusiastic.

We implore all Unilorites to always make themselves available for all these games as scheduled, as shows of solidarity for Faculty which they belong to, and at all times be filled with the spirits of sportsmanship, maintain absolute orderliness and peaceful coexistence before, during and even after each encounter.

Remember it is more than just the games. It requires deep passions, strengths and profound emotions.
