UPDATE ON LOCKED PORTALS DUE TO ILLEGAL SPREADSHEET ACTIVITIES

We want to announce to all students whose portals were locked due to illegal spreadsheet activities that our interaction with the management has yielded positive outcome as the STUDENT DISCIPLINARY COMMITTEE has been scheduled to sit and look into the matter before convocation.

All affected students have been invited to face the SDC on October 2nd, in the faculty of Arts boardroom, so that the committee can further investigate the matter to fish out the innocent students from the rest. The invited students are expected to come along to the venue with 30 copies of their response to the allegations.

Moreover, we are assuring the students of effective and efficient representation at the SDC sitting, to ensure that innocent students are vindicated. Not only that, all the pended academic activities of the students found innocent of the act would be expedited, and their results immediately processed to ensure they graduate at the right, befitting time.

We beseech the concerned students to be peaceful, calm and to comply with the laid down regulations of the committee.

RE: COHS: SUSPENSION OF HOSTEL PAYMENTS

We want to openly state that the Student Affairs Unit has reiterated its commitment to the wellbeing of all students and, consequently dissociated itself from the knowledge of arbitrary hike hostel prices at the the COHS .

While interacting with the leadership of Student Union on the matter, the Dean of Students, Professor L. T. Ajibade declared that the Unit was not in the knowing of such decision, and therefore, is not part of the recent development at the COHS.

He mentioned that the Student Affairs Unit is a core part of the school management saddled with the responsibility of general care of the students of the better by far University, and the unit could not have supported a decision that can infringe on the responsibility of the Unit.

The Dean assured us that the SAU is looking keenly into the issue and shall communicate with the union and her members as soon as possible on positive note.

We hereby stand on our ground that all hostel payments (both school and private hostels) at the College of health sciences be suspended till further notice.

We also use this medium to appeal to the general public to disregard the information making rounds on social media that the University of Ilorin Student Union is not in good term with the management of the school. This is in respect to news emanating from some unscrupulous news agencies lacking in the true ethics of journalism and only basing their reports on hearsays and unfounded yet unresearched reports.

It is normal to have debate on some issues pertaining to the welfare of the students who gave us their mandate to represent them, but that does not in any way mean that the union is at 'loggerheads' with the school management.

The enviable stable academic atmosphere our school is enjoying is as a result of tackling early disagreements such as this.

We implore these fame-seeking media outlets to go tinker their trade somewhere else, if they cannot desist from for-profits journalism.

COHS: SUSPENSION OF HOSTEL PAYMENTS

We are aware of the recent development concerning prices of hostels, which we considered too exorbitant for our students, and there has not been any acceptable justification for arriving at the prices. It is on this note that we are asking all students of the College of Health Sciences to SUSPEND ALL PAYMENT FOR HOSTEL!

We want to reiterate our commitment to advancing the welfare of our students, and standing our ground in times of unnecessary hostel fee increment is a core part of our plans. We want to assure these students that we are not in any way satisfied with the decision and we have sprung to action and we call for the suspension of all payments until they hear from us again.

Moreover, those who have paid should be rest assured that there money is in safe hands, and any eventual change in the prices would be effected on their payments too.

We implore our students to be peaceful and calm as we are already championing the struggle to attain justice.

FELICITATION AND SOLACE

We felicitate with all the fresh graduates of the Better By Far University as the long-awaited graduating list was finally released completely.

We want to congratulate everyone who made the list for passionately striving to move to an higher level in their academic lives, for overcoming all the lectures, assignments, tests, and examinations. We pray the almighty God doesn't make this the end of success in your lives.

It is also in our prayers that as you have reached a great milestone in your life, may God make it a stepping stone to greatness.

We also wish to offer calming words to those students who couldn't make the list. Remember, everything in life happens for a reason, and there is purpose for everything. We are certain the reason for this delay is because there is a greater purpose for you.

Delay is not denial, and true strength is the ability to keep trying until you achieve your goal. You are indeed better by far.

In conclusion, we implore those students affected by the illegal spreadsheet activities on their portal to remain calm and understanding as we are not resting on the issue. We are making strong consolidations on our initial appeals, and we promise to bring information as soon as we receive them. We are giving our words for it.

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.
