 The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, University of Ilorin chapter, has completed the first phase of a N7.28 million female hostel.
The building which was single-handedly built by the union was commissioned last week by the school’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Abdulganiyu Ambali.

Outgoing Chairman of ASUU, Professor Wahab Egbewole, who spoke at the commissioning ceremony said the need to embark on the project “was informed by the mantra of our executive which is unionism for development.

“We have watched with consternation the plights of our children, wards and students struggling and scrambling for the limited number of rooms on the campus.

”A number of them have fallen victims of Shylock landlords and wicked neighbours while leaving outside the campus.

”We, therefore, resolved to contribute our quota towards alleviating the sufferings and challenges of these young and vulnerable minds by building an 80-bed hostel for the female students.”

Vice Chancellor, Professor Ambali commended the leadership of the union under Prof. Egbewole as a pace-setter, saying the gesture was the first of its kind by any union since the history of the university.

He therefore urged other branches of the union nationwide to emulate the leadership example of the school’s ASUU by embarking on such projects.
