Several hitherto dilapidated structures in the University of Benin are currently undergoing renovation.
The latest to feel the impact of the purpose-driven and committed Vice Chancellor, Professor Lilian Salami, include the Block of Flats housing units, which had not seen any coat of paint for decades, and the twin lecture theatres in the Faculty of Social Sciences.
A visit to the sites showed construction workers observing required physical distancing as dictated by the COVID-19 phenomenon.
Also receiving attention is the John Harris Library and the University Demonstration Secondary School, while the collapsed wall of the Ekehuan campus and other fallen perimeter fences in the Ugbowo campus have been fixed.
The Salami - led Management had earlier renovated the University Staff School (primary) and refurbished the amenities, including chairs and desks. Also, the UNIBEN Table Water Factory has been refurbished and re-positioned for optimum performance.
