University of Ibadan Shuts down Over Fuel Crisis

Things are getting more worrisome as University of Ibadan shuts down over fuel crisis in the country. Due to the fuel scarcity in the country, the management of University of Ibadan (UI) has ordered the students to vacate the school premises following the lack of water and electricity in the institution.

The directive was issued to students following ‎an advice given by the Committee of Provosts and Deans to the university’s management.

According to the Director of Communication of the institution, Mr Muhammed Oladejo, the management asked the students to proceed on a two-week mid-semester break.

It was learnt that the students of Independence Hall of the institution earlier on Monday staged a protest complaining facing hard time as a result of shortage of water and electricity.

An official of the university, who spoke, but pleaded anonymity, said,

“‎The mid-semester break was declared as a result of power outage. The outage is also affecting other services on campus, especially water and electricity supply. The committee advised the management on the step taken to avert problems as witnessed recently. The mid-semester break will take two weeks. The students living at Independence Hall lodged a complaint and the school authorities decided to take immediate action.”

Although the ongoing strike by NUPENG and PENGASSAN has been called off, it will take more than 72 hours for the fuel scarcity to be contained.
