Students of Veritas University, Bwari in the Federal Capital Territory are currently embarking on a peaceful protest over poor state of social amenities in the school.
The students who have refused to speak to any of the school management staff, are complaining over lack of electricity, Water, Poor infrastructure in the Hostels and lack of banking facilities.
One of the protesters told Elanza News that the students are not happy that despite of the huge amount of money paid as school fees, the students still languish in horrible situation.
It was gathered that most of the students of the University pay between N450,000 and 550,000 as school fees.
“Without electricity, we don’t get water in the School,’ one of the students said.
According to her, “The electric generator the school should be using only works for one hour each day and as a result, we suffer before getting water,” she said.
“There is no banking facilities in the school because all the ATM machines inside the school are not working. The hostels are bad that is why we are out expressing our anger,” another student said.
Most of the students refused talking to any staff that approached them. They are insisting that the Vice Chancellor of the university must address them.
As at the time of filling this report, the school VC, Prof. Michael Kwanashie is yet to issue an official statement concerning the protest.
