The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Wahab Egbewole, SAN, and the entire management of the University of Ilorin has advised new and returning students to exercise great patience in view of the traffic challenges they are likely to encounter, as a result of the ongoing construction of a Flyover along the axis.
This is contained in a statement signed by Director, Corporate Affairs, UNILORIN, Mr Kunle Akogun on Monday in Ilorin.
The statement informed that the Vice Chancellor and the entire management are eagerly waiting to welcome new and returning students of the University back on campus as from Thursday, December 15, 2022 for the commencement of the 2021/2022 academic session.
The statement informed that to avoid the Tipper Garage route, there are two alternative routes to access the Tanke Oke Odo road towards the main campus.
“The first one is the detour after the Government Day Secondary School, Tanke, enroute Pipeline to Awolowo Road, which bursts out at old Mark Fuel Station on University Road.
“The second one is the Fate-Tanke Road by the old Saw Mill, Tanke, enroute the Police F Division Road that bursts out at old Mark Fuel Station.
He said Commuters and motorists can also access the University main campus from town through the newly constructed UITH – Main Campus Link road to avoid the likely traffic build-up on the Tanke access road and reduce the attendant delay in getting to the campus,” he said.
The director wished all students journey mercies back to Ilorin and to the campus for the resumption of their studies.
Meanwhile , some students who spoke with Royal FM correspondents , olarotimi oshin have called on the vice chancellor to appeal to the lecturers to stop what they described as emergency test when they notice students reduced attendance in early morning classes due to the tanke traffic build up.
