Published

on

The University of Ilorin, Ilorin, has distanced itself from a report by a blog, Fact News NG, claiming that the school authorities blamed the Kwara State Government for transportation challenges faced by its students.

Fidel Info reports that in a statement by Kunle Akogun, Director, Corporate Affairs, UNILORIN said the claims in the report are the wild imagination of the author of the concocted story.

“The report, which is purportedly based on the press statement we issued on Monday, 10th January, 2023, is a mischievous misrepresentation of the letters and intent of that press statement,” the University said.

Findings by our medium show that students of the institution do not just start facing transportation challenges. The transport glitch predates the construction of the Tunde Idiagbon Flyover in Tanke.

“The content of our original press statement is very clear and there is nowhere in it that the state government is blamed for the transportation glitch on University Road. That insinuation is in the wild imagination of the author of the factnewsng.com’s concocted story,” the University spokesperson added.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the University of Ilorin, as a reputable academic institution, has nothing to do with the politics of Kwara State and nobody should hide under our genuine concern for the welfare and wellbeing of our students to pursue personal agenda.”
