Ladoke Akintola University in Oyo State has imposed a new ban on students driving or bringing their cars onto the campus. The university’s management has also prohibited the use of tinted vehicles by both staff and students. Additionally, the vehicles of beginner drivers must display learner permits.
The decision was reached at a management meeting held on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, according to a memo signed by the Registrar of the institution, Kayode Ogunleye. He stated that the ban on student-owned vehicles entering the campus was necessary due to the high traffic on the campus.
“Vehicles owned by students are hereby banned from entering the university campus. Vehicles with no registration numbers are no longer allowed on campus. Roadside parking of vehicles should stop forthwith,” the memo read.
Furthermore, any unauthorized vehicles parked within the university premises will be removed immediately, with appropriate action taken by the university security.
