The Students Union Government (SUG) of Adeyemi College of Education(ACE), Ondo, has donated a borehole for students of the institution.
Speaking on behalf of the 2018/2019 students union executives at the inauguration, Oluwatobi Adebusoye said they constructed the borehole due to the challenges students were facing in getting water on campus.
According to Adebusoye, this water project would help students during this harmattan, saying that their desire was to provide potable water to their fellow students.
Adebusoye while decrying the challenges being faced by students, said that they find it difficult to get water to bath and do some other things on campus.
“It was due to what happened in 2018/2019 academic session during the harmattan, students were unable to get water and as students union, we decided that something must be done, thus, the construction of this borehole”
The SUG president, who did not disclose the actual cost of the project, however, said they got the borehole done with the support of the management of the institution.
He, therefore, appealed to his fellow students who are still in the school to maintain and make proper use of the borehole.
Provost of the institution, Dr. Samuel Akintunde, said this would be the first time student union will come out and find solution to the problem facing their fellow students on campus while adding that those who came up with the idea are reasonable.
Akintunde who lauded the student union for what they have done, noted that this would be a lesson to other student unions in the country.
“I want to advise that they should always give peace a chance and they should also run away from vice such as cultism, rape among others,” he advised.
The Provost also urged the student union body coming behind to take a cue from what the outgoing executives have done for the institution.
