The Management of the University of Ilorin has expressed concern about the enormity of the transportation challenges currently being faced by their students.
In a statement made available to journalists in Ilorin on Tuesday by Director of Corporate Affairs,
University of Ilorin, Kunle Akogun, the University assured that measures are being put in place to ease this difficulty in the shortest possible time.
Akogun said “The Management is currently engaging with the Kwara State Government on the need to conclude the Flyover construction on the Tipper Garage axis of the University Road timely and the provision of more strategic interventions to ease the burden of our students.
“The management is also considering the possibility of reviving the virtual lecture option, especially for large classes, to reduce the necessity of having large number of students on the road at peak periods.
“Arrangements had already been concluded to bring in big buses for massive movement of students but they could not be deployed yet due to the Flyover construction on the University Road.
“The management, however, appeals to our better by far students to exercise patience while concerted efforts are being made to resolve the unfortunate transportation challenges.
“The welfare of our students remain the mainstay of the Management and this will not be compromised for any reason.”
