We Sleep In Darkness, Attend Classes Without Bathing – UI Students

Students of the University of Ibadan have reportedly been living in difficult conditions on campus since members of the non academic staff of the university began their strike, as sources of water and electricity have been switched off.

Some of the students who spoke to Punch on Monday said there was no water and electricity in the hostels and in all the classrooms.

“Each time there is crisis between the school administration and the staff, the students are always at the receiving end,” said Kayode Onifade, a 300 level student of the Faculty of Arts.

“Our lecturers now combine their work with that of non academic staff because they get the keys to open the classrooms for lectures to hold and lock them after.

“In the hostel, we sleep in darkness. Many of us attend classes without taking our bath because there is no water. Both parties must reach an agreement for the sake of the students. The living condition is terrible,” added Onifade.

It would be recalled that academic and administrative activities at the university was halted on March 20, 2017, when staff of the institution declared an indefinite strike because of what the union described as “illegal deductions of pension money from their salaries.”
