The statement partly reads “The University Management, led by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor ‘Ayo Clement Adebooye, having observed that the high cost of inter-campus commuting will have a high negative effect on staff of the University, recommended to the Governor, a disbursement of palliative, which he graciously approved with immediate effect.

“The Executive Governor, Senator Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke approved the recommendation of Management for payment of palliative to UNIOSUN staff because of the high cost of inter-campus commuting during this period of high petrol price.
