Take Us To Other Universities, University of Abuja Medical Students Cry Out

Students of the suspended medical school of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja) yesterday blocked major roads leading to the Federal Ministry of Education, Abuja to demand transfer to other institutions.
The students, numbering over 50, alleged that they were deceived by the institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. James Adelabu.
President of the University of Abuja Medical Students Association, Mr. Uche Anyanwu, who led the protest, said more than three months after the Vice-Chancellor’s promise, there was nothing to show for it.
He recalled that they were led into believing that facilities at the medical school would be ready for accreditation within six months.
Anyanwu said: “We are here to see the Minister of Education based on the agreement we had on April 12.
“It was agreed that the VC would put things in order within two to three months and maximum six months and we were to report to the minister within three months if nothing happened in the university.
“For the past three months, nothing has been happening in the University of Abuja in terms of putting in place infrastructure, staff and equipment.
“Nothing is happening and this is why we are here to report to the minister that nothing is happening in the university. We want to be transferred to other accredited medical schools because we are stranded.
“This is tantamount to homicide, keeping students in 300 level for the past seven years, we are tied.
“We have approached our Vice-Chancellor several times, but of recent he has not shown interest in seeing us and it’s unfortunate that we have been psychologically battered. We have passed through a lot of trauma, yet the university management has shown a nonchalant attitude.”
The students said the guarantee given by the VC that things would be put in order within a week or two has not materialised.
They hailed the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria and the National Universities Commission for showing commitment to resolving the stalemate, but accused the school management of failing to meet its side of the bargain.
