In a viral picture that has been circulating on social media, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ilorin was seen moving from hostel to hostel, asking students who were yet to leave the premises to vacate the school and go home. This move came after the university announced a three-week break to allow students to return home before the upcoming elections.
While some students had planned to stay in school during the break, the Vice Chancellor made it his personal duty to visit each hostel and ensure that all students have left the premises. The picture sparked a lot of gossip and discussion on social media, with some describing the VC's actions as "chasing students out" of the school.
However, the University of Ilorin has been taking measures to ensure the safety of its students, especially during the election period. The three-week break is aimed at ensuring that all students are out of harm's way during the election period, and can return home to be with their families.
As at the time of reporting, many students have already left the university, while others are still packing their bags and preparing to leave. The University of Ilorin is committed to the safety and well-being of its students and will continue to take all necessary measures to achieve this
