Dean Raises The Alarm Over OAU Faculty Building
« on: September 05, 2016, 10:04:19 AM »
The Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Prof. Agbo Amusan, has said the failing link bridge between two buildings at the faculty poses a serious danger to the lives of staff and students of the university.

Amusan raised the alarm in a speech he delivered at the inauguration of the lecture theatres renovated by the 1991 alumni of the faculty.

Amusan said apart from the failing link bridge, there was a time sewage pipe burst inside the offices of some lecturers due to years of neglect and the place had to be closed down despite that there were inadequate offices for staff members.


 
The dean said that the faculty was one of the faculties, which the university started with while stressing that the place needed an urgent renovation.

He lauded the 1991 set and urged other sets to rise up and assist their former faculty to give the present staff and students an environment conducive for teaching and learning.

Amusan said, ?The attendant old age and progressively increasing pressure occasioned by staff and students? usage over the years, on the various facilities within the faculty buildings had led to a near total collapse of the facilities.

?This was compounded by the lack of routine maintenance of the various facilities within the buildings. The inability to carry out regular routine maintenance of facilities is often attributed to dwindling funding from the Federal Government.

?Some of the major challenges facing the faculty are the structural problems of the faculty buildings, one of the columns that support the link bridge is failing already and this poses a serious danger to lives.?

The President, Faculty of Agriculture (1991), Mr. Henry Ojuoko, said he mobilised other old students in the set to assist the faculty because of the delapidation caused by years of neglect.

The Acting Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Anthony Elujoba, who was also present at the brief ceremony, said he would ensure a good change within his six month tenure.
