KWASU Bans Students from Driving Personal Cars on Campus
By Alabidun Shuaib Abdulrahman
Kwara State University, KWASU’s administration has stated that students would no longer be permitted to drive vehicles on campus.
This was stated in a press release issued by Mr. Abdulrazaq Sanni, Director of University Relations, shortly after the inauguration of the Compliance and Enforcement Committee on Tuesday, February 8, 2022.
The Vice Chancellor noted that it has become imperative to ban students from driving on campus in order to protect the lives of students and employees from students who drive recklessly.
“This has become necessary in view of the fact that Management observed that our roads have become a race course where students drive at nerve breaking speed thus constituting nuisance on our campus.”
The University helmsman further noted that Management has resolved to institute sanity and orderliness within the university community and most especially save the lives of students from recurring ghastly motor accidents, as well as discourage the use of vehicle as a tool of oppression among students.
Students are therefore advised to ensure strict compliance, as no vehicle would be allowed into the university premises under any guise, as sanctions would be meted on any student that flouts the rule.
The ban, according to the statement, would take effect from 14th February, 2022.
