Students of the University of Ibadan, Oyo state, reportedly protested the lack of adequate water and power in the institution.
According to TheNation, the student staged the protest on Saturday, March 5, to express their displeasure over poor facilities and epileptic power supply which have been plaguing the university community for some time now.
They barricaded the gate around 11:05am while chanting songs and carrying placards with the messages, ‘no light, no water.’
The aggrieved students accused the school authorities of ignoring the problems in spite of the several efforts made to call its attention to the situation.
President of the Students’ Union, Mr. Olateju Oladimeji,lamented that the union had written the authorities over the problem but that there had been no positive response.
He said: “We have been living on the campus without electricity and water for the past three weeks. Sanitary situation on the campus is currently at its lowest and we notified the school authority, but it refused to take any action. The management is insensitive to our plight.”
