Imo State University to become fully residential soon...As management shows more concern for students welfare

 The management of Imo State University Owerri has reassured the students of the University that the school is fully aware of the challenges that they are going through and assured that the problems will be tackled, including making available hostels for the students inside the school.
A team led by the Dean of students affairs, Prof. Anthony Okere, made this known last Saturday when they visited the different alliances (student residential areas) around the institution. The students alliances visited included Okwuratta, Aladinma, Bishop's court, Front gate, Orji and Ikenegbu student alliance.
Speaking for the team that visited Okwuratta students alliance, the University librarian, Prof. Okey Okoro said that since the creation of Imo State University, the law that established the institution made it a non-residential institution until 2014 when the law was amended and made the institution a residential institution.

He said another reason why the school had not been residential was because until last year the issue of the permanent address of the school was a thing of debate. But now the decision has been reached and IMSU is now permanently located at Owerri, it's current location, thus the university is already making progress towards making hostels available for the students inside the institution.
Prof Okey decried the high rent paid by IMSU students in the hostels (Hostel rents in IMSU ranges from 80,000 to 200,000 for a standard one room self contained room).
Speaking further, the University librarian admonished the students to keep off carelessness that can lead to hurting themselves and others and directed that the students should have faith in God and be security conscious and bold.
On the issue of school fees payment, the librarian said the instruction of the state government is simple: non-indigenes pay school fees while indigenous students don't. However the indigenes only have to pay yearly ancillary fees ( #20,000).
 Speaking also at the meeting, Reverend Father Professor Philip Ogbonna (Mmuo) said the issue of insecurity around the students area has become alarming and it prompted the management of the University to call the attention of the state government and the commissioner of police to intervene or face massive protests by the school.
Responding to the visitors from the school management, the president of Okwu-uratta students alliance, Mr Dubem "Evolution" thanked the University leadership for showing concern for the students. He noted that that was the first time such care is been shown by the management of the university.
Others who were in the team were Dr Prince Sam Ezeanyika, the students staff adviser, and the university P.R.O
