The Management of the Kwara State University (KWASU) has dissociated itself from the banner displayed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), KWASU Branch during the solidarity rally by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) held on Tuesday, (July 26, 2022).
In a statement signed by the Registrar of the institution, Dr (Mrs) Wasilat Sallee and made available to newsmen in Ilorin, the KWASU management called on public to disregard the views expressed in the banner, saying in a vehement term that the views do not represent the views of the Management.
“The views expressed in the banner do not represent the views of KWASU Management and should be disregarded.
“The University, since inception, has enjoyed the support and goodwill of its proprietor, the Kwara State Government. The University has many capital projects undertaken by the Government. Recently, the Government under the able leadership of Alhaji AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq committed huge funds to the completion of the Osi and Ilesa Baruba campuses of the University. The University has also been assured of intervention funds once the dwindling finances of the Government improves.
“The University appreciates all these gestures of the Kwara State Government and will continue to support the efforts of the Government in positioning the University for local and international competitiveness” the statement added.
