I don’t know what the government is always saying whenever the university of Ilorin is involved, I just hate the fact that they always rank this university into the level it does not deserve to be, the only implantable thing about university of Ilorin Is that they do not go on strrke; apart from this, every other thing about the school is total bullshit, from the vice chancellor, most of the lecturers , the securities, the cleaners, the transporters, and the students themselves are set of people who I don’t know what to use to define them.
The school authority are group of people who believe the student are group of people who should be treated like sheep without shepherd and the students are group of people who are shaky chicken who can not avoid to fight for their rights, but alas! The last session which ended in the year 2017 was one of the best session when student decided their voice was going be heard a bit even though some truth still lies hidden to the messes and the government about the university of Ilorin. I will be discussing five lies about the university of Ilorin; better by far my foot!

1. They are better by far.

I don’t understand what the slogan ‘’ better by far’’ means to the university of Ilorin but one thing that I do understand about something being better by far is when the thing has a standard that is far better than others. I really do not know what is better by far about the university of Ilorin, a university where people of mature age can not decide what they wish to do is not better by far; how can you say a school where student suffer to transport themselves to their homes after a hectic hour of lecture is not better by far. A school where the student union can be slapped by a lecturer without the lecturer facing panels is definitely not better by far.
The word better by far isn’t something that should be used anymore in the university of Ilorin. If the institution is not ready to comply to the right policy then they should stop using the word ‘’better by far’’.

2. They have the best of student.

University of Ilorin might have the best set of student but seventy percent of those very great students are not great due to the student that the lecturer taught with good tenacity; most of those student are good because they work extra hard outside what the lecturers had taught.
University of Ilorin is one of the most annoying school where students are expected to just cram to pass and not read to understand and explain in their own words; unilorin student will be the worst student if they are to be combined with other federal university students, I’m speaking for those student who just listened to what the lecturers teaches not what the world is revolving round.

3. They don’t embezzle money.

How on earth can someone say university of Ilorin does not embezzle money… oh my God! That is a whole lot of lies, former vice chancellor of the university of Ilorin was chased out of a meeting with academic staff union 0f university for not having an explanation for a fund of about forty one million naria; rumours has it that he used the sum of forty one million naria for hosting the person who came to represent the president of Nigeria; the person of Mohammed Buhari and till today, no right explanation has being put out for his actions neither has he undergo any disciplinary actions.
Also I heard the previous vice chancellor had a plan of deducting money from the salary of most professors before those took a drastic objection.
So they should stop talking about how university of Ilorin has a clean slate of corruption and bribery.

4. They have the best conduct.

University of Ilorin is not the best place to say that people have the best conduct, most of the students in the university of Ilorin do not impact conduct into students, they impact fear into student and they come to the world bragging about one bullshit of how these abused students of theirs have good morals. What do you expect from a student who has being made to fear life, of course they will act like they are of good conduct.
I am not arguing that university of Ilorin do not have student with best conduct, all I am saying is that the school should stop boasting about all this attribute of their students, most of their students are naturally of good conduct from home and the school authority is making life hell for the best by seizing their youthful right, so what is better by far about that?

5.They produce the best graduates.

The school authority for university of Ilorin should stop making a fool out of themselves by saying they produce the best graduates; they produce eighty percent of frustrated graduates, most final student in the university of Ilorin are always in a hurry to leave the school. Most of those students will even complain of how they tried all their best to graduate with good grade and yet the school made it more difficult for them to have that good grade they worked so hard to have.
I know graduates from Ilorin who will never dream of ever coming back to study anything in the university of Ilorin, they are group of people whose life were disturbed , destructed and abused by some stupid rules that seize their youthful right. Why is the school now always talking about being better by far.
