Students of the Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado Ekiti, have lamented the absence of clean and adequate toilets on their campus.
Many of them say they now resort to open defecation.
In places where there are toilets, STECHITEGIST gathered that these are not managed.
“You can’t find any toilets usable on campus. You have to prepare yourself from home before coming to school. You watch the kind of food you eat, except you want to use ‘shot put,’” Mercy Olowofela, a 200-level student of the university told STECHITEGIST
Other students blamed the unavailability of usable toilets on campus on the university management.
Ridwan Taiwo said in some departments, ”there they have toilets, no proper cleaning is done which makes students abandon them.”
“The available toilets don’t have cleaners to fix them. Some have not been washed and makes students even scared of contaminating disease,” he said.
For Kehinde, a 400-level student of Faculty of Law, the unavailability of water to flush the toilets in her department render those toilets useless.
“How do you use toilets without water to flush? The entire University has two boreholes. Lack of potable water is another challenge that makes students suffer,” he said.
Shade Olaonipekun said: “Yes, there is no toilet for students, but I go to the office of some of our lecturers. The Dean of Faculty of Social Science, out of generosity built (a) toilet for the department but (it is) not properly managed which renders it useless,” she said.
