ESUT medical students kick over ejection from hostels

Medical students of the Enugu State University of Science and
Technology, ESUT, on Wednesday expressed sadness over what they termed
“forceful ejection” from their hostels.DAILY POST gathered that the students were ordered to vacate the college latest yesterday, Tuesday.
The development attracted angry reaction from the students, who complained that the order had left them in serious frustration.
One
of them told our correspondent that “it is a very difficult situation
because we were asked to leave with all our properties. Where are we
going to keep our luggages?”
It
was gathered that the management of the College of Medicine had earlier
notified the students in a letter signed by the Secretary, Mr. D. K
Okpala, on behalf of the provost, asking them to vacate the premises.
The
letter reads, “I am directed to inform all students of the ESUT college
of medicine that they must vacate the hostels and the college premises
before 4PM today, November 3. Students must leave the college with all
their belongings and leave the doors to the rooms open on vacating the
rooms. Note that any property left behind in the hostel after 4 pm will
be deemed to have been forfeited.”
However, the Public Relations Officer of ESUT, Mr. Osita Ugwuoti disclosed that the order was to give the hostels a facelift.
According to Ugwuoti, “we had written the students to notify them
that we will embark on renovation. We gave them ample time before we
wrote them again.
“We are embarking on the renovation because the
facilities are deplorable. It is also pertinent to embark on the
exercise ahead of accreditation for the college.”
