The Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin (Unilorin), Professor Wahab Egbewole, on Monday, expressed mixed feelings over the havoc wreaked on the institution by heavy rainfall accompanied by a windstorm.
Egbewole, who led other principal officers on a campus-wide tour to assess the level of damage done by the rain, said he was saddened by the incident.
He, however, expressed relief that it occurred when students were on a break following the directive of the Federal Government to shut all universities for the period of the 2023 General Elections.
The vice-chancellor lamented that properties destroyed by the rain would have serious consequences because they would affect the activities of staff and students, especially researchers who required the internet facility for their academic work.
Egbewole, however, assured stakeholders that all affected facilities would be given ultimate attention, adding that their repairs and restoration will start in earnest.
