Debunking the claim on Monday at a news conference, Prof. Salako said there was much to it than meet the eyes, dismissing it as a politically-motivated statement intended to satisfy selfish curiousity. The University's Management reaction came even as the Leadership of the students Union passed a vote of confidence on the Vice Chancellor and the readiness of the university to resume virtually and physically. Prof. Salako told journalists at a press conference on Monday that all measures had been put in place, including the fumigation of the campus for not less than ten times since March, 2020. He added that the management had been producing its own hand sanitizers as well as the procurement of hand-washing basins and soaps needed to keep the students and members of staff safe from contracting the virus. To validate the management's position, Prof. Salako took the journalists on tour of some newly completed and rehabilitated buildings that have been equipped with latest technological gadgets to aid virtual teaching and learning. The Vice Chancellor added that the buildings also have equipped laboratories, auditoriums, lecture theaters, classrooms with each being 50-seated, 100-seated, 200-seated capacity as well as newly constructed and renovated administrative offices and hostels. He hinted that about 150 solar panels have been installed in some of the buildings to provide alternative sources of electricity and aid the planned hybrid system of academic activities. According to Prof. Salako, "the university is ready to receive students both online and physically and we are going to ensure that all the students adhere to covid-19 protocols. "One things that this administration is known for is that we are not just building, we are equipping. We are committed and responsible to ensuring that things work in the school despite the threat posed by Covid-19". He lamented that students are tired of staying at home, promising that the management would do everything possible to cover the academic gap caused by the closure of the campus.
