The Management of the University of Ilorin has responded to social media news report on a planned protest by a group of former students of the University with respect to some convocation items they are expected to have.
The Director, Corporate Affairs, UNILORIN, Kunle Akogun in a statement said these are the personal effects and necessary commemoratory mementos for the successful completion of the concerned graduands programmes in the University.
He noted that it is unfortunate that the concerned graduands, instead of demonstrating knowledge of the prevailing economic reality in the country and appreciating the good disposition of the University management in arriving at this rate, which is the lowest possible, chose to toe this untidy path.
Akogun who stated that the action is misguided by few individuals, added that the University reserves the right to determine what materials are necessary and at the most reasonable rates for its students or graduands.
He urged graduands to remain worthy in character and learning, always live above board with the display of sound knowledge of the prevailing economic situation in the country.
