The Vice Chancellor of Michael Okpara University
of Agriculture Umudike, Prof Hillary Edeoga has
launched an intra-campus shuttle for students
with 20 new Suzuki cars and two mini buses
donated by the institution’s micro finance bank.
According to the Vice Chancellor, the vehicles
will be used for the purpose of transporting
students within the school and from Umuahia
town on daily basis free of charge provided they
present their identity cards to the drivers as the
fare had been paid with their school fees.
He also mentioned that he was inspired to buy
the vehicles due the recklessness of motorcycle
operators in and out of the school and recalled
an incident in which a student was serious
injured in an accident while riding as a
passenger in a bike
He further stated that with the provision of the
vehicles that there will be no more commercial
motorcycle operating within the campus.
In his opinion this will minimize the level of
stress and difficulties experienced by students
coming to school in commercial vehicles and
provide a conducive environment for learning.
