KASU Management Evicts Medical Students From Hostels – a day after letter was forwarded to the Governor

Barely 24 hours after the stranded medical
students of Kaduna State University wrote to the
Executive Governor of Kaduna State and Visitor
of the University lamenting the stagnation that
befell them as a result of lack of accreditation,
the University Management has engaged
measures to remedy the plight of the students
by evicting them from the hostel causing panic
for students whose studies is being interrupted
and for parents who bear the psychological pain
of having such a promising future been toyed
with after years of investment which has so far
been fruitless.
This the school management communicated in a
notice to the students directing that Medical
Students ‘are required to vacate the hostel
immediately’.
The Medical School has been unable to have a
clinical arm after over 6 years of its existence
having six sets spread across three classes with
three of these currently stuck in 300 level (some
for over three years).
It will be recalled that the students had staged a
peaceful demonstration to the State Secretariat
on the 9th of September 2015 lamenting the
neglect and stagnation which has dashed the
hopes of the Young Nigerians aspiring to serve
humanity in a field that the Governor had
declared a State of Emergency over i.e. the
Health sector, at such a protest the
Commissioners of Health and Education had
promised that the issues surrounding the
accreditation of the School will be dealt with
latest 3rd week of October, this was not
achieved and no one cared to address the issue
ever since.
The school authority claims the session has
ended thus the move to evict the Medical
Students, this has raised questions:
1. Whether the 200 level students writing
examinations can no longer continue their
examinations since ‘the session has ended’
2. Whether this is the first time the session has
ended having kept a class in 300 level for over 3
years instead of 6 months
3. Whether a session can come to a close
without a sessional exam
4. Whether the academic calendar provides for a
session to end with the notice of a letter only.
These questions are in dire need of answers, the
students have spent years beyond expected and
the kindest sympathy showed is to evict them …
These students are currently helpless!!!
