Rainwater Floods OAU Physical Health Education Department Facilities

The Department of Physical and Health Education at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State has been at the mercy of rainfall, with floods ravaging the floors of the classes whenever it rains.

Pictures obtained by our correspondent, on Tuesday, show that the rain which fell on Monday evening left the classes in the department flooded.

It was gathered that students usually had to either miss their classes or endure dipping legs in the water to perform at the department.

Some of the students, who spoke to our correspondent on condition of anonymity, for fear of victimisation, said that they had endured the horrible situation for a long time and no one was doing something about it.

PUNCH confirmed that some of the facilities at the department had their roofs already blown away, with some structures left dilapidated.

Sources also said that some of the lectures’ offices were not left out in the situation.

“Whenever it rains, the place is a pool.

“Very soon, we, the PHE Students will be having our class under the tree. Maybe by then, the school management will be happy,” a student in the department, identified simply as Folawe, said.

“This Department needs total renovation. The gym especially is always full of water whenever it rains. And that has been since 2016 that I was doing my B.Ed.

“Visiting the school after these years later, I realise it has worsened. I think OAU should start taking good care of a unit that made it great.

“A place like Mainbowl and PHE is not supposed to be in this bad condition.

“The swimming pool pavilion is nothing to write home about, and the indoor gym is like a small pool.
Has it gotten to that stage for OAU?

“I regret coming back to see this.

“This gymnasium was one of the best in Africa during my undergraduate days, how on earth did OAU Sports Complex and PHE get to this level?

“Is the School management aware of this?” an alumnus, Tunji James, who visited the school recently, said.
