The University of Benin (UNIBEN), Benin City has yet again found itself in the bad side of the students. The school has been accused of producing unsafe drinking water for students’ consumption.
A reporter for Featured24 in Benin who bought the UNIBEN sachet water to ascertain the students’ claims concludes that the water being sold to the students is truly unclean.
Close observation shows some particles moving around in the already sealed sachet water exposing how unclean it is for consumption.
Our correspondent who gave the school a benefit of doubt that the water could have been an old stock which has been packaged for long dug deep into the situation to unravel the truth.
According to his findings, the water being sold out for consumption were recently produced. This shows that the water is not going through proper process before being sealed in sachets.
The students of the school have vowed to sue the Management of the varsity for refusing to acknowledge the complaints of the students.
The students also call on the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) to shut down the varsity water factory.
Meanwhile, in an apparent reaction, the Food and Drug Agency has vowed to shut down packaged water factories endangering Nigerians’ health.
But the UNIBEN management has now acknowledged the issues raised by the students, saying the matter was being addressed.
“The school is already on the matter please,” Dr. Benedicta Ehanire, UNIBEN’s public relations officer, simply said in a students’ online platform.
