• UI bans motorcycles on campus

Vice chancellor, University of Ibadan (UI), Prof Idowu Olayinka has canvassed the expansion of facilities in the nation’s universities saying no meaningful learning can take place where facilities and staff are inadequate.

Although Olayinka welcomed the establishment of more universities, he however stressed the need to adequately equip existing ones.

“Expansion of facilities in the existing institutions is good, having more universities is equally good. I agree that existing facilities should be expanded. We need more facilities. Students and staff will do better if there are facilities. Expansion boils down to funding. Public universities are cheaper than private ones but public schools cannot admit all students seeking admission”

He said since the existing public universities cannot adequately meet the needs of the teeming admission seekers; private universities need to come in to complement government-owned ones, saying standard of such institutions would improve with time.The vice chancellor also announced plans by the university to ban the use of motorcycles on its campus effective from the end of June

Prof. Olayinka said the use of motorcycle on campus is not a safe mode of transportation. “It comes with a lot of risks. If you go to the orthopedic ward of the University College Hospital (UCH), you will see a lot of accident victims. It is not the best mode of commuting. He however said the Prof. Adefemi Adegbesan committee would look into the complaints and concerns of stakeholders.
