The Acting Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Okechukwu Onuchuku, made the disclosure during an interactive session with the students of IAUE at the school’s main auditorium.

Onuchuku stressed that the ban on the compulsory sale of textbooks and other forms of extortion by the lecturers, charging academic staff members to make available the sources of their teaching resources to the students.

He urged the students to report any lecturer who violates the order to him, advising the students not to make themselves vulnerable to the lecturers by not studying hard.

Onuchuku said: “Anybody that forces you to buy textbooks or harasses you to pay money to pass an examination, report him to me. Your parents sent you here to study, do not allow it to waste.”

Vice-Chancellor revealed the institution’s plan to build perimeter fences around all female hostels in the institution, noting that the move was to consolidate the security of its students.

Onuchuku, while maintaining that the university’s policy of paying statutory school charges in two instalments, initiated by him was still in place, advised the students to leverage on the policy instead of not paying their fees at all.

He further lamented the destruction of the university facilities, particularly in the lecture rooms and the hostels, praying the students to use the facilities as if they were their personal property.
