KASU Management Evicts Medical Students From Hostels

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

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!!!
