BREAKING NEWS: FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF AGRICULTURE MAKURDI AND THE STUDENTS UNION CONCLUDED ON THE INCREMENT OF HOSTEL CHARGES

 

INCREMENT IN HOSTEL CHARGES

Great Makurdians,

As we celebrate the new month and prepare for the eminent resumption, it is imperative to brief you of the resolution reached at the last meeting between the Students Union and the University Administration on the 30th April, 2018.

With respect to the proposal of the Administration to increase hostel charges to 20/25k respectively which has become imperative so as to adjust to the biting inflation and high cost of hostel maintenance, the Students Union having carried out an intensive and careful survey of other institutions and opinions of Great Makurdians, we were able to renegotiate and arrive at the following ;

1. That charges be increased only to 10/15k for old and new hostels respectively.
2. That mattresses and pillows would be issued out to both occupants of the old and new hostels. [ this the University Administration agreed to do in phases starting with the new hostels and because of the time frame, occupants of the old hostels would be given in the second semester]
3. That the WiFi services be extended to the hostels
4. All students present evidence of fees payment before being issued accommodation spaces
5. Students would be free to make choices of which hostel to take.

Furthermore, the Issue of late release of the first semester results of 2016/2017 session was discussed and the Vice Chancellor assured that the Senate will be sitting by Thursday 3/05/2018 to approve all results.

We commend the contributions of all who took out time to respond to our survey and make reasonable contributions which were the foundations and bedrock of our decision making.

We wish you a happy new month and a safe return back to campus come 6th May, 2018.

Aluta Continua, Victoria Acerta.!
