BREAKING News: ALL HOSTEL PAYMENTS IN IMSU OFF-CAMPUS ALLIANCES SHOULD BE SUSPENDED FOR NOW — IMSU DEAN STUDENT AFFAIRS
In what is a swift reaction to the outcry and discontent of IMSU students and student leaders to the outrageous increase in hostel fees of hostels in IMSU off-campus alliances, the Dean Student Affairs of the institution Prof. Martins Uchenna has directed that all payments by students be suspended forthwith.
Making this crucial directive today at a high-powered comrades meeting organized by IMSU student leaders to address the issue, the erudite academic said the suspension takes effect immediately and will be in effect for a week.
At the meeting which was a roll call of all comrades of various capacities including the 2019/2020 IMSU SUG Executives led by Comr. Oguike Arinze Collins, Legislative members led by Hon. Mayor Chikwe, alliance presidents, faculty executives and so forth the Dean maintained that it is insensitive on the part of the landlords to increase the rents outrageously as that COVID-19 happened wasn’t the fault of the students or theirs either.
He maintained that students shouldn’t be made to bear the bulk of financial implications of a pandemic.
It is of essence to note that the Dean will have a roundtable meeting with all off-campus hostels landlords just as he called for a meeting of all hostel presidents to his office on Monday, January 25, 2021 by 10:00am on the same issue.
It is therefore noteworthy that no IMSU student should be harassed, thrown out, victimized or threatened into paying any increased rent pending the outcome of the landlord’s meeting with the Dean Student Affairs.

2019/2020 IMSU SUG Director of Information
