The management of the University of Ilorin says it is considering the possibility of virtue class for some groups of students, following the transportation challenges being faced by the students of the institution as a result of the ongoing road construction project on Tanke Road.

A statement issued by the Director of Corporate Affairs of the institution, Kunle Akogun, said the Management of the institution was deeply concerned about the enormity of the transportation challenges currently being faced by our students, assuring that measures were being put in place to ease this difficulty in the shortest possible time.

The statement reads in part: “The Management is currently engaging with the Kwara State Government on the need to conclude the Flyover construction on the Tipper Garage axis of the University Road timely and the provision of more strategic interventions to ease the burden of our students.

“Arrangements had already been concluded to bring in big buses for massive movement of students but they could not be deployed yet due to the Flyover construction on the University Road.

“The management, however, appeals to our better by far students to exercise patience while concerted efforts are being made to resolve the unfortunate transportation challenges.

“The welfare of our students remains the mainstay of the Management and this will not be compromised for any reason”
