The University of Ibadan Students’ Union has announced that the Kunle Adepeju reading room is now open to students.
The facility was renovated by Punctuate PR in partnership with the Students’ Union.
Speaking with UCJUI at the commissioning, the SU President, Samuel Samson Tobiloba noted that the renovation of the reading room was inspired by the need to increase comfort for students.
“When we came in, we actually met this place as a store, and as a kind of immediate action then, we did some palliative work and we were able to reopen. But those that were reading here would bear witness to the fact that it was not that comfortable. When ‘Punctuate PR.’ reached out to us that they wanted to have a program, we requested that they renovate our reading room in exchange for support that we provided for their program. And that’s how we came about the renovation of this reading room project,” he said.
“We are happy to the glory God the reading room is now open for students to use. We are still working to make sure that when there is no light we can provide alternative means of power for people who to use it,” he President added.
Expressing excitement over the completion of the project, a marketing team member at Punctuate PR, Oluwafisayo Saka noted that the project was initiated to foster academic excellence.
“Punctuate PR, a public relations agency partnered with the Students’ Union Executive Committee to renovate the reading room. We are excited to see what our partnership is going to bring in future months. We hope that this reading room can be useful for students and help them to achieve academic excellence,” Saka, Marketing said.
Charging the alumni body to key into developmental project in the University, the Project Supervisor, Kayode Bello called for more collaborative support
“I use this opportunity to call on the Alumni to look into dilapidated properties at the level of the Students’ Union. The SRC Chamber needs to be renovated. The toilets, though I have heard that the University of Ibadan management is also trying to renovate the Students’ Union building, it is advised that it should be done as soon as possible,” Kayode said.
“Lest I forget Mr. Saheed Oladele, the operator of Erudite Millennium, as well donated more chairs to the tune of 120,000 naira. Kudos to him, he is an alumnus of the University we need more people, more corporate bodies to key into this developmental project,” he added.
