Speaking during the visit, which took place on Monday, May 28, 2018 at the Vice-Chancellor’s Conference Room, Main Campus, the Chairman CSSP, Chief Toni Joseph said the aim of the visit was to officially welcome and congratulate the Vice-Chancellor on his appointment.

Chief Joseph solicited for Management assistance in tackling security challenges around the University, adding that the University community is a direct beneficiary of students presence.

The Chairman revealed that the Police vehicles have been out of use for sometimes and when the vehicle was in use members of CSSP used to contribute money to fuel the vehicle to carry out its operations.

He appealed to the Vice-Chancellor to look into the issue of amount being charged by the University for deferment, adding that many parents find it difficult to raise the money for their wards as a result of non-payment of salaries by some State governments.

Responding, the Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Abdullahi Bala, fsssn, thanked them for their interest in the stability of the University.

Prof. Bala pointed out that the population of the University students is over twenty-two thousand and only about four thousand live in the school premises and it is the concern of Management to ensure that the students live in harmony with the members of the University community.

The VC said that discipline among the students is a major factor for peace and harmony and indiscipline leads to chaos, saying that the University has zero tolerance for indiscipline.

“The target of the Management is to have 70% of the student live in the school premises to enable them interact with one another,” Prof. Bala disclosed.
On the issue of selective prosecution, the VC said that any student found wanting will be dealt with appropriately.

“There are committees set up to deal with students’ misconduct in the University and students discipline is always handled at the highest level. There can never be selective justice in dealing with students no matter where you come from,” he stated.

On the issue of payment of school fees, the VC said students were given sufficient time and the Management bent backwards to accommodate them by extending the portal closure to allow more students to register.
“Some students collected money and spent it hoping to get another before payment,” he revealed.

“Students should know that their first responsibility is to pay their fees, to do their registration. Students who are not able to pay their fees before the portal is closed are advised to apply for deferment because there is no way the portal can be opened. If you do that, the student will take it for granted,” he said.

The VC assured members of CSSP that there request would be looked into by Management while noting that they are partners in progress.
