The Vice-Chancellor, who expressed disappointment with the development promised students of the University that he would personally hunt down and bring to book any staff involved in extortion and sexual harassment of students.

He used the occasion to reiterate that the policy thrust of his administration is the welfare of students and announced that the University had embarked on the construction of four new Students’ hostels.

Prof. Akpagu also disclosed that plans had reached an advanced stage to convert lecture pavilions to storey buildings in order to create additional space for teaching and learning.

He thanked the students for the show of support and assured them that his doors were open to all staff and students.

In his solidarity message, the Students Union President, Comrade Daniel Eno, commended the decision of the Vice-Chancellor to make students welfare the centre-piece of his administration’s policy thrust.
