(Opinion) Gov Hope Needs To Look Into The Issue Of Accommodation For Imo State University Students

Indeed, education is the life wire of every society, hence, I strongly believe that the Imo State Government should lay emphasis on the development of their academic sector, especially their Tertiary institutions.

At Imo State University's campus in Owerri, I realized that most students live off-campus. Going by how much indigenes and non-indigenes pay for tuition, one would expect that there would be enough hostels for the thousands of students. Reverse is the case.

This situation causes a lot of students who live off-campus, to get distracted from academic activities.

Even more, the cost of housing in Owerri is on the high side, hence, it is very common to see students who live in places as far Uratta(one of the villages in Owerri), where housing is relatively cheap.

This situation is really pathetic and I urge the Government of Imo State to wade into this issue and ensure that enough hostels get built in IMSU.

Dear Nigerians, what is your take on this delicate discussion?
