Scarcity of Water
For some days now, there has been almost no supply of water in most of the hostels on campus for students to cook or wash. This has caused a very big challenge for Students of OAU living in the school hostel.
Students had to go as far as Ladoke Akintola hostel from their hostels in order to get water while some other students go to religious ground to get water.

Having noticed this, the Security Department released an update:
“The Security Department wishes to inform the stakeholders of the University community that the supply of water will be restored any moment from now following an unavoidable shortage of supply due to events beyond our direct control, the shortage was caused by inability of the suppliers of Allum and Chlorine to keep their end of the bargain making it impossible for the University to supply water as it will be unsafe to pump untreated water to any point on Campus.
We have been aware of the development and have since taken the bulls by the horn to nib the bud and ensure restoration of water supply on campus. We are encouraged by the patience and resilience exhibited by the stakeholders; students particularly in this respect and are assuring a swift rectification”.
