VC UPHOLDS PROMISES: PAYMENT OF SCHOLARS BEGINS

We wish to announce that the University has upheld the promise of the VC by beginning payment of University scholars for the 2017/18 session.

Recall that at a recent edition of the SU "STEWARDSHIP" radio programme, we said that the VC in a meeting promised that he would not owe any of the scholars their payment this session and that arrangements are being made to pay.

This development is one that we are happy about as it is the first time in the past 3 sessions that scholars are being paid within the immediate academic session.

We commend the University management under the leadership of our amiable Vice Chancellor, Prof. S.A Abdulkareem for the timely payment and reassurance that he keeps to promises.

We remain committed to the course of promoting the interests of students. Thank you.

COHS: UPDATE ON CURRENT HAPPENINGS

Alongside other student leaders from various associations in the College of Health Sciences (BAMSSA, ILUMSA, NUNSA, ASSON and SPAN), SU officials held a meeting with the College management today over a number of arising issues, particularly on plans of welcoming private developers to build new private hostels at the new college against the next academic session and also the current issues of power and water supply that have affected students so much.

After the management was informed about the problem, immediate calls were made to necessary quarters and the works department confirmed that there was a fault with the direct power supply, which has now been rectified. Also, the fault with the generator is with the alternator and funds have been approved and released by the College to purchase a new one. All hands are on deck to ensure the fixing and ultimate resolution of the problem as soon as possible. The hostel manager was also contacted about the lack of power supply and efforts were made to use another generator to pump water.

We apologise deeply for the inconveniences so far and the communication gap from our angle and we promise to make amends to forestall further occurrences of such.
Thank you.

WATER SCARCITY ON CAMPUS

Unilorites, we salute! We salute your perseverance in the last 24hours of water scarcity on the university campus.

This was unfortunately caused by a fault in the machine that pumps water to the campus from the dam.

Since the shortage started, we have been communicating with the University management for quick solution. Much could not be done today due to the restriction in movement that prevented officials from the works department to come to the campus.

We have engaged the director of works and he informed us that this morning, all hands will be on deck in resolving the problems.

While efforts are being targeted at repairing the machine, alternatives are also being sought to restore water supply to campus, especially halls of residence.

We assure you that we're working assiduously and laboriously to combat this issue as we understand the challenges that scarcity of water poses to us as students, especially in this period of examinations.

If alternatives do not work, we assure you that the Student Affairs Unit will ensure that hostel managers step in to offer internal solutions for various hostels.

We thank you for the patience so far and we encourage you all to remain calm as we work to solve the problem in the best possible time.

EXAMINATION AND GENERAL ELECTION

It is no longer news that harmattan semester examinations for 300-500level students of the University begins on Monday 11th February as contained in the final examinations timetable.

Since the release of the timetable, we have received several complaints from various students who raised concerns over the structure of the timetable in relation with the general elections schedule. For some, their concern is about safety of students especially those who reside outside the campus and for some others, the concern is about the opportunity to travel outside the state to exercise their rights to perform one of the most important civic duties i.e. voting.

We consider the two issues as of utmost importance. Our administration places much priority on safety of lives and properties of our colleagues both within and outside the campus and we have never been shaken in taking necessary measures to ensure this.

In the past days, officials of the Union alongside the league of Faculty presidents have been in talks with relevant student management authority in the University to consider possible changes in the timetable that can allow students who wish to travel in order to either vote and/or be with their families for safety purposes. Up till now, there has been no change by the University on the timetable.

The University’s interest stems from the need to ensure the stability of our calendar to allow our final year students meet the deadlines for their next activities (NYSC and Nigerian Law School).

We can recall that in January, the Student Union was successful in moving the Continuous Assessment (C.A) Test for returning students from 7th January to 14th January and that ultimately affected the calendar. Another move to extend the calendar may go a long way in altering the calendar and prevent us from meeting the deadlines.

It may therefore be out of place for the University to out rightly declare an holiday for students in this electoral period; we however pleaded for flexibility in the timetable to give students the grace to participate in the elections without fear of it affecting their examinations.

The news going around social media platforms that the Federal Government has declared break for University students for the election is unsubstantiated and incorrect as upon our checks, the University has not received any official memo/circular to that effect.

We have also received with great shock, the rumour going around that the University management is of the opinion that most students are underage and won’t be able to vote. This is very untrue, and is another step of detractors in soiling the integrity of the University.

The University has shown great interest in promoting good citizenship and allowing students to vote. It is the reason why we have several polling units on campus, where thousands of students have registered as their voting centres.

Albeit we hope for free and fair elections, we are taking precautionary steps and next week, we shall write officially to necessary authorities in the stat to demand for special protection for all our colleagues residing outside campus, in case violence erupts before, during and after the elections.

We intend to follow up the course of our discussion with the University and we shall communicate with students, in case we get a slight change.

We implore you all to continue preparing for the examinations and we wish everyone best of luck.

EXAM DATE REMAINS UNCHANGED

The Student Union wishes to dissociate self from the questionable report going viral on social media platforms that the school management has rescheduled exams for 6th of February, 2019 due to election activities.

We also use this avenue to inform the general students populace to make use of the link on our press releases in confirming the authenticity of any messages from the Union.

We however implore students to disregard any contrary information about the change of date and prepare selves well for the exams.
