Dr. Jonathan Atungwu  responding to questions from UNAAB Bulletin

 

 

The Chairman of the University’s Management Committee on Transportation (MANCOT), Dr. Jonathan Atungwu has admonished students of the University on the need to always arrive MANCOT Parks an hour before their Lectures.

This according to the Chairman, will enable a flexible period of commuting and also assist in avoiding the usual traffic congestion between 7:45am and 8:00am in the morning.

Speaking with UNAAB Bulletin crew, the Chairman asserted that students should avoid the habit of sleeping beyond 5.00am during the week, noting that if students get to MANCOT Parks early, they would be guaranteed a timely service.

According to Dr. Atungwu, the buses commence operations at the MANCOT Parks by 6:45 am, daily.

Dr Atungwu identified lateness of students to the MANCOT Parks and the high incidence of traffic congestion on the road, as some of the challenges facing the committee.

He however, appreciated the efforts of the Vice–Chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun for being supportive in the welfare of the students and staff at large.

The Chairman disclosed that the University operates 19 functional buses, with each running an average of 18 trips per day and lifting about 7,000 students to and from the Campus, on daily basis.
