In his words, he reveals that, “Just to ease the pain of the students, I now said fine, let’s say we are having a hundred and ten (110) buses, if we multiply that number by a thousand and two hundred naira (N1,200), which is about a hundred and thirty-two thousand naira (N132,000). I then concluded that, I would rather do something student will benefit from.
This thing cost me nothing less than Eighteen Thousand Naira (N18,000). (He shows the press the proposal document of his intended project). You know no one will embark on a proposal free of charge, you need to give them money. If the Union is ready to give the welfare unit just (N1.2m), then I am ready to go the extramile of soliciting for funds…… Will I be a beneficiary of this project? No. But the students will be the one to benefit”.
