The management of Kwara State University, Malate, (KWASU) has debunked claims in the social media that the institution connived with politicians to procure voter cards from students for the purpose of general elections.
This was contained in a statement signed by Yusuf Suleiman, for director, university relations and made available to our correspondent in Ilorin.
The statement reads:”The attention of the management of Kwara State University has been drawn to an insinuation in the social media that the institution connived with certain politicians to procure voter cards from students for the purpose of the general elections.
“We wish to state that the university has no link with any politician or political groups hence did not engage in any form of canvassing or undertaking any clandestine moves for anyone or group concerning the ongoing elections.
“We wish to enjoin members of the public to disregard such posting on the social media or any platform or media as there is no truth in it.
“The university remains committed to its original mandate of teaching, research and community development.”
