As 4,000 new students of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, MOUAU, Abia State took the matriculation oath of the institution, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Hillary Edeoga assured them that problems of accommodation would soon be solved.
Speaking at the 20th matriculation of the institution penultimate week, Edoega assured the fresh students that concrete measures have been taken to tackle the challenges of classroom and hostel accommodation, promising that in less than four months into their studies, the problem of accommodation would become history.
Prof Edeoga said, “Already, the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC)-assisted hostel project is nearing completion while the 10 new hostels embarked upon by this administration will be handed over by their various contractors to the university within these months I mentioned earlier.”
Counselling them to be serious, the Vice-Chancellor said success requires “commitment, dedication, discipline and hard work,” adding, “your success in this university depends on how you manage your time, in addition to how you apply yourself to the course of study into which you have been admitted.”
