Power Blackout Stalls Activities In EDM, Agric Faculties
For more than 6 days now, the Faculty of Environmental Design and Management (EDM) and Faculty of Agriculture in Obafemi Awolowo University, have been thrown into darkness, as a result of power black out.
The lack of power supply in these faculties has stalled several activities including laboratory works that requires power, and some other academic activities.
Understanding that the school's WiFi network runs on power, some lecturers in the affected two faculties have also blamed the power supply outage for their inability to process the results of their graduating students, since they cannot be connected. This could result in some departments not able to meet up with today's university Senate meeting where such results are expected to be ratified.
The students of the faculties and those from outside the faculties too have their own share of the repercussion of the blackout; many students who use classrooms in the faculties to read at night have now been denied, due to lack of light. This is not the first time these areas will be disconnected from the other part of the university power-wise, we hope the relevant authorities will of help look into the issue and find a lasting solution to it.
