Acting Vice-Chancellor of the Kwara State University Prof. Shaykh Luqman Jimoh, has cried out over critical challenges confronting the institution.
In his address at the combined 10th and 11th convocation ceremony held at the institution’s main campus on Saturday, the Vice Chancellor lamented that the access road to the university is not smooth given the state of the road from Shao to Malete community.
According to Prof. Jimoh, there are bad portions on the road and a few culverts on the verge of collapse adding that the road provides access to a growing number of vehicular traffic, not just to the university, but the numerous agrarian communities within the corridor.
The VC said, “access road to the university is not smooth given the state of the road from Shao to Malete community.”
“There are bad portions on the road and a few culverts on the verge of collapse. This road provides access to a growing number of vehicular traffic, not just to the university, but the numerous agrarian communities within this corridor,” he added.
Meanwhile, in a bid to find a solution to the issue of encroachment, the Vice Chancellor suggested to the Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazak to constitute a land review committee for the singular task of reviewing the status of the land mass ceded to the university at the inception and enforce appropriate government policy and sanctions to prevent all forms of encroachment.
In his message to the sixteen thousand, three hundred and fifteen graduating students of the combined convocation ceremony, he charged them to advance their environment through responsible actions which will not damage the ecosystem, adding that they should propagate the core values for which the university is known.
“You have equally been grounded on the need to be self-sustaining. As you set forth into the world, equipped with outstanding education in not just your disciplines, but in these life skills, we are incredibly hopeful that you will bring glory back to your alma mater.
“We look up to you all to go into the world and propagate these values for which your university is known.”
