EKSU-ASUU Produces Sanitizers, Says Covid-19 Antidote Ready Soon

The Academic Staff  Union of Universities (ASUU), Ekiti State University (EKSU) Chapter, has hinted that results of the research efforts by it’s members towards producing an antidote to dreaded virus would soon be out.

ASUU Chairman, Akure Zone, Professor Olu Olufayo, disclosed that its members had produced an alcohol-based ointment christened ‘ASUU Sanitizer’.

He explained that the product would be distributed to Ekiti residents for free, describing it as the union’s contribution towards fighting the scourge.

According to him, the product is expected to reach about 5,000 people in Ekiti State.

Professor Olufayo said the Zone has mandated all the five public universities under it to produce World Health Organisation-compliant sanitizers that can curtail the spread of the lethal virus.

Olufayo said his colleagues across Nigeria are in the laboratories conducting various researches into how to find an antidote to the ravaging COVI-19, saying the results will be out soon.

“Since this pandemic broke out in Nigeria, ASUU has been supporting the government physically and financially through provisions of quality sanitizers and running of jingles on radio and television and distribution of handbills to educate our people about Coronavirus.

“Again, our members all over Nigeria are carrying out research  upon reserach to find antidote to this killer virus  and the  results will be made public very soon.

“ASUU is concerned about  the welfare of the populace and we have to support the governmebt despite our unresolved crisis over payroll  with the Feeral governmeb.

“What we are donating today is in compliance with the directive of ASUU National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, that  every zone  must  help the government in whatever form to fight Coronavirus. 

“We have donated some packs to the Ekiti State Government and over 4,000 will be distributed  free at markets, banks, motorparks, rural communities by members, just to ensure that the scourge does not fester among our people.”

The ASUU Chairman, Ekiti State University chapter, Dr Kayode Arogundade, appealed to Ekiti residents to adhere to the stay-at-home directive declared by government and maintain safety wherever they go.

“ASUU is an assembly of eggheads. We are in the laboratories working hard to help our people, because we exist for the generality of Nigerians.”
