The authorities of the University of Ibadan, have promised to up their response to health emergencies as well as improve the institution’s health facilities.
Professor Isaac FolorunsoAdewole, revealed this at a press briefing, held at the Senate Chamber of the premier university.
This was coming against the backdrop of the death of a student of the institution, Mr. MayowaAlaran, of the Department of Education,studying Human Kinetics, last week Wednesday.
The late Alaran was said to be watching the match between Barcelona and Bayern Munich before slumping and subsequently rushed to the Health Centre, Jaja Hospital.
However, it was insinuated that his colleagues had earlier made frantic efforts to get the hospital to send its ambulance to convey him, but when this was not forthcoming, a private arrangement was made instead.
Eventually, the student died before he could receive medical attention which resulted in a mass protest by the students, the following day.
