Dean Raises Alarm Over Possible Collapse Of OAU Faculty Building

The Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Prof. Agbo Amusan, has said that the failing link bridge between two buildings at the faculty poses a serious danger to the lives of staff and students of the university.

Amusan raised the alarm while delivering a speech at the inauguration of the lecture theatres renovated by the 1991 alumni of the faculty on Saturday.

He said that apart from the failing link bridge, years of neglect caused the sewage pipe to burst inside the offices of some lecturers and the place was shut down despite the fact that offices for the staff were insufficient.

Noting that the faculty needed urgent renovation, the dean lauded the 1991 set and urged others to assist their former faculty and give the present staff and students an environment conducive for teaching and learning.

Amusan said, “The attendant old age and progressively increasing pressure occasioned by staff and students’ usage over the years on the various facilities within the faculty buildings have led to a near total collapse of the facilities.

“This was compounded by the lack of routine maintenance of the various facilities within the buildings. The inability to carry out regular routine maintenance of facilities is often attributed to dwindling funding from the Federal Government.

“Some of the major challenges facing the faculty are the structural problems of the faculty buildings. One of the columns that support the link bridge is failing already and this poses a serious danger to lives. In one of the departments, some academic and technical staff have sewage pipes leaking directly into their offices and they had to vacate the offices.

“There is the problem of leaking roofs and this causes disruption in power supply and students are expected to carry out laboratory research at the faculty, without electricity supply.”

The President of the Faculty of Agriculture (1991), Mr. Henry Ojuoko, said he mobilised other alumni in the set to assist the faculty because of the decapitation caused by years of neglect.

Ojuoko promised that the set would not relent in assisting their alma mata within the limited resources of the members. He called other old students of the faculty to emulate the 1991 set.

The Acting Vice- Chancellor, Prof. Anthony Elujoba, who was also present at the brief ceremony, said he would ensure a good change within the six month period of his tenure.

Elujoba said the university would not allow the link bridge to collapse, adding that renovation would be carried out not only at the faculty but also all over the campus.
