Management of the University of Ilorin has postponed reopening of its school hostels on account of ongoing strike by the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU and the Non Academic Staff Union, NASU.
The university management made this known on Saturday via a statement, stating that the information principally concerns the new intakes.
“This is to inform 100 Level students of the University that the reopening of school hostels, earlier scheduled for Monday, 15th February, has been postponed.
“This is due to the on-going strike by the non-teaching staff, which has affected the source of electricity and water supplies to the hostels,” the statement read.
The varsity further added that a new date for the reopening of the hostels will be announced in due course.
“We appeal to our students, on whose welfare we place a very high premium, to bear with management and await further announcements,” the university said.
The management however said that virtual lectures will continue as scheduled for all categories of students.
