Some residents of Block 3 of Adekunle Fajuyi Hall in Obafemi Awolowo University have stopped the construction of a buttery beside their block describing it as illegal and unacceptable.
Fajuyi Hall residents woke up this morning to see the construction of an extra structure suspected to be a buttery at the end of block 3. One of the recharge card sellers in the Hall was recently granted the permission to erect the structure, it was learnt.
Aggrieved by the development, the residents complained that the structure was illegal and cannot be allowed. In their outpour, they challenged the jurisdiction that allocated the space saying some fellowships use the same space to keep their equipments and properties during week days. They asked what their fate will be if the buttery is constructed.
Reacting to the students’ stoppage of the construction work, the person who was allegedly given the space said he has been granted an official permission by the Hall Warden and hall management to erect the structure. The man who could not produce any document to substantiate his claim said he stays in town and the paper he was given for the permission is in town.
These aggrieved students have however threatened to remove any further construction made until the Warden wades in on Monday. The residents of the block vow to mobilize to the hall warden on Monday to express their disapproval and rejection of the proposed structure.
