In an interview with the SUG President, Com. Oyekan Tobiloba, he spoke about the challenges he and his team faced to see to the success of the project, mentioning that; funding was a major challenge, but with the support of sponsors and contribution within the executives, they were able to achieve their goal and have fed 3000 students out of 4200 students in view, and are still planning on having the third phase next Friday, 5th of April, 2024, to complete the project.
Also the SUG Welfare Director, Com. Sanusi Olawale Samuel, in his remarks, expressed his joy to see the success of the project.

Furthermore, in the statement of the SUG Public Relations Officer, Com. Kadelu Oluwole, he revealed the reasons there was an adjustment in the requirements for the palliative. “It is a move to hold students accountable to the payment of their SUG dues, to ensure that they benefit from the SUG. It can be likened to Nigerian citizens expected to pay tax”, he explained.
