Unilorin SU: Matters ARISING From Korope Transportation Fare

Unilorin SU: Matters ARISING From Korope Transportation Fare


STUDENT UNION

UNIVERSITY OF ILORIN

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Passionate Unilorites,

 KOROPE TRANSPORTATION FARE; MATTERS ARISING

Firstly, we sincerely apologize to all students for the situation at the park yesterday evening, after which the Korope Transporters refused to convey our members out of school to their various destinations. The actions of the Korope Transporter was simply their reaction to the stand of the Student Union, which was simply to protect our members from unnecessary exploitation.

It is important to remember that the Korope had initially requested for a 100% increment on their fare and the Student Union refused instantly. However, negotiation was initiated, and the outcome was pegged at #50 from PS to Sanrab and #60 for bus stops after Sanrab, which was pended for possible implementation.

Prestigious Unilorites, the protest of the Korope Transporters yesterday morning left us with no option, if we don't want to heap avoidable transportation stress on students and disturb academic activities on campus, than to workout the implementation of the initial #60/#50 agreement; which we did.

But however, the Korope Transporters, after seeing the situation of the park yesterday evening, went haywire and bent on exploiting our students by insisting that all bus stops from PS is #60, which was never discussed on the negotiation table. This inconsiderate decision led to the vehement refusal of the Union to compromise, which was why no Korope was allowed to operate, and we must thank the members of the Union for their show of solidarity yesterday.

In conclusion, the Union was in talks with the leadership of the Korope Transporters yesterday and the #50 From PS-Sanrab/#60 to bus stops after Sanrab fare has been discussed and agreed on. There is going to be a meeting between the Student Union and the Leadership of the Korope this morning to clearly highlight the terms of the agreement and to further state our conditions!

We implore our members to bear with us on this development. Moreover, the School-owned buses will be available to convey students from Terminus to School and vice versa at #30 only. Our members should also note that the Union is not folding hands at the moment, as we are working on possible alternatives to our present means of transportation.

We beseech the better by far students to be peace-loving, calm, and strong, as we embark on this journey to rebrand the value system together.
