The Vice-Chancellor of Nasarawa State University, Keffi, Professor Suleiman Bala Mohammed has hinted that the Nasarawa State Government intends to construct a 4000-bed capacity hostel in the University to ameliorate the accommodation difficulties encountered by students of the University.

Professor Suleiman stated this when he hosted student union officials at an Iftar (Ramadan fast-breaking) at the Assembly Hall of the University on Wednesday.

The Vice-Chancellor said the government is not oblivious to the accommodation challenges that students face and the attendant risks that those living off campus go through which has informed the government’s decision to construct the hostels. He stressed that management is intensifying the security of the students within the campus.

Professor Suleiman while stressing the essence of the gathering stated that management in the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan has organized a series of the Iftars for various interest groups in the University irrespective of religious alignments to create an avenue for mutual bonding and fraternization to further cement the religious harmony enjoyed on the campus.

In their separate responses, the President of the Students Union Government, Comrade Abdulrahman Oshafu, and NANS Zone C Deputy Coordinator Comrade Daniel Friday applauded the Suleiman Bala Mohammed-led management team for its visionary leadership and student-friendly posture which has birthed interventions that have made students have a sense of belonging.

The Student Union leaders also used the avenue to appeal to management to organize a Sallah get-together for students who cannot travel home due to distance and logistical reasons, a request the Vice-Chancellor obliged to by setting up a committee to be chaired by the Information and Protocol Officer and other student union executives to work out modalities for a smooth and hitch-free ceremony.

The highlight of the ceremony was the presentation of a crested cap to the Vice-Chancellor by the Deputy Coordinator of NANS Zone C.
