The attention of the Management of Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti has been drawn to a publication in the Premium Times of Thursday, 2nd May, 2019, captioned “Ekiti State University Students lament shortage of Toilets”.
The University wishes to debunk the contents of the story which is full of lies and not a true representation of happenings in the citadel of learning.
For the information of the general public, seven blocks of toilets had been constructed on campus and five are being put into optimal use. One block of toilet contains ten toilets each, with five allocated to male students, while the other five were allocated to female students. These toilets are strategically located for easy access by the students and measures put in place for their regular maintenance.
For the avoidance of doubt, these toilets are located in the Faculty of Engineering, Directorate of GST, beside the main library, Directorate of Continuing Education Programme and the University Health Centre.
I wish to emphasize that the University takes exemption to such a publication which portrays it in a bad light without confirming from authorities that could speak on such a sensitive matter. The objective of the writer of this article is questionable.
The University, under the present leadership of the
Acting Vice Chancellor, Professor Olubunmi Ajayi, takes the welfare of both staff and students as priority and would ensure that nothing erodes its enviable track records that it has over the years.
Head, Information & Corporate Affairs,
Ekiti State University.
