The long standing industrial action embarked upon by the members of J.A.C has continued, bringing to a halt much of the non-academic activities in the University of Benin.
As a consequence of this, the UNIBEN management has mandated all students staying in the school hostels to carry out a general cleaning of their hostels on the 3rd of March, 2018.
Additionally, a bill signed by the Dean of Students, Prof. Osariemen Benson Osadolor and Director of welfare SUG, Aghedo Gifted says that all students are expected to comply with this.
The halls of residence have really been in a very bad shape due to lack of the Non-academics staff that are meant to maintain the hostels. The exercise which is to start by 6am will hold in both campuses (Ekewan & Ugbowo).
When students were asked about what they think of the exercise, many opined that it was simply the most logical thing to do and that it makes sense.
But many also expressed concern about the prolonged strike and called on the authorities to intervene so that the issues can be resolved and the strike brought to an end.
We hope to see the hostel in a better shap eafter the cleaning.
