The authorities of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) condemned the sale of handouts to students of the institution by lecturers.
A circular signed by the Registrar, Mr E. D. Obafemi, noted that the management was aware of the resurgence of the practice, described as illegal, on campus and warned that those caught would be punished.
The circular reads: “The Administration has received reports that in spite of the circulars prohibiting the sale of handouts to students, there is a renewed activity of this illegal business on the campus. The sale is perpetrated by lecturers using devious means and agents such as shop owners and class representatives to reach the students.
The unwholesome practice must not be allowed to continue given the growing positive image of the University.
The attention of all Deans and Heads of Departments is once again drawn to the extant circular proscribing the sale of handouts to students. Any lecturer found violating this directive will be brought to book.
