FUOYE students protest Inadequate Infrastructure

The student of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) today protested Inadequate Infrastructure and inadequate supply of power and other basic amenities.

The protesting students blocked the Ikole-Omuo Highway for several hours accusing the management.

They demanded that the institution’s management shared infrastructural development equally between them and their colleagues in Oye-Ekiti campus.

The angry students said facilities at Ikole campus was so inadequate to the extent that some of them receive lectures under trees owing to lack of lecture rooms.

Other problems at the campus, according to them, include irregular power supply, lack of functional bursary department, non-availability of drugs at the medical centre, lack of functional Engineering Workshop, water tanker for the agric faculty and buses for shuttle to
the main campus.

Responding, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Kayode Soremekun, promised that the students’ complaints would be looked into.

Soremekun said: “I can promise you that these issue most especially those with long term, a Committee will be set up to look into finding lasting solutions.

“I can assure you that Ikole campus would not be sidelined, though my Office is in Oye-Ekiti, I will also make presence here at least once a month.”
