FEDERATION OF ARA STUDENTS UNION (FASU)

_LETTER OF DEMON RATION/ NOTIFICATION AGAINST RCF CONSTRUCTION COMPANY ARA- EKITI_IJERO LOCAL GOVT.

     The above union write to inform and notify you of our upcoming peaceful demonstration against RCF construction company in ARA EKITI that  have been making life uncomfortable and unbearable for our parents and dear students  during this era of the global covid-19 pandemic , even a life threatening activities is  being operated by this so called company. 

Hence, our cogent reasons for embarking on an UNSTOPABLE  peaceful protest are as follows : 

1. HUNDREDS OF BUILDINGS CRACKED TO COLLAPSE 

Countable  Buildings( houses)are now almost collapsed 

 The blasting has always been causing a strong waves which negatively  affect  our buildings, afterwards,  rendering our foundation weak and shaking. Even after our findings 15 buildings has collapsed within June 2019 to this year in the community.

 According to the agreement between the community and the RCF company it was stated that the company will compensate the victims of recorded cracked houses, till now , nothing was done.

We hear lamentation from the victims every day , we cannot bear this any longer.

Again, 

Presently, in ARA-EKITI, we, in the community can not drink natural water because the  blasting particles of this rock jump on the air and also form a glue to our roofs which change the color of the rain water.
This company site is located at the source of community drinkable water(omi oniroju,and amugogo)  in which the particles of the blasting rock as spoiled the taste and colour of the water making it undrinkable and unused for the people in the community.

2. RECKLESS DRIVING/BAD UNMOTORABLE ROAD

The so called construction company drivers drive their trucks recklessly without considering humans lives in the community.

 According to the agreement signed between RCF and the OJOKO FAMILY(LAND OWNER) IN CONJUNCTION WITH ALARA IN COUNCIL it was stated that there will be maintenance of ARA road from ARA to AWO and ARA to IJERO, but the company  has failed to do so, instead causing  a lot of damages which make our road unmotorable .

3. UNAWARE BLASTING

RCF company blast rock unaware and this is unfair to the community.
 This  is a life threatening to the people in the community e.g hypertensive patient and farmer, there should be proper notification before the  blasting is done because there is an agreement that all blasting must be done 6pm after people might have been back from farm but this company make their blasting anytime of the day.

However , with the cooperation of the ALARA IN COUNCIL, We(FASU) held a meeting with RCF company on the 29th of June 2020, the company representatives promised to get back to us but failed to do so even till now.

 Also on 15th of July we the student union body sent a letter requesting for viable response from RCF company, yet they failed to reply us and they keep on damaging our properties.

However , having written  series of letter to the police Division, Area Commander in Ijero Ekiti and DSS(Already created an awareness of the police force ) which has resulted to no positive response.
