The University, in trying to debunk the viral video, said through its official Facebook page that what was seen in the video was just lies as the University had long renovated and somewhat still renovating hostels across the campus. It further posted photos of hostels in the campus to back up its claims

“Social media have been awash with a video clip recorded by a lady on the condition of Nkurumah Hall, one of the oldest hostels in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN). The nocturnal video created the impression that students of the premier university live in a neglected squalid environment. But findings by newsmen who went round the university suggest otherwise”.

“For a university that was founded in 1960, the hostels have seen age. They however not as bad as they were portrayed in the social media. Most of them have been renovated and are in good condition. The renovated halls include: Ajanwachukwu, Akintola, Awolowo, Balewa, Bello, E-block, Eyoita, Isa-Kaita, Mary Slessor and Presidential. Okeke hall was rebuilt after a fire incident in 2016 while the toilet ends of Okpara Hostel were modernized during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020”.

“Mbanefo hostel, the biggest of them all, is currently undergoing renovation, while the university administration is considering viable and fair model for quick renovation of Nkrumah, Alvan and Eni-Njoku hostels”.

This publication by the University however didn’t sit well with students and alumni of the institution as they disapproved the claims by the school.

social media users reacted to the publication as follows;

Usonka Kelechi wrote – “We were once students of UNN. Trying to​

use an important health concern for cheap propaganda is absolutely wrong!
Show us pictures of Franko Hostels, Akintola and Akpabio, Mary Sesrl., Ajah Nwachukwu, Eyo-Ita.
Please, kindly let those in position know We can get a change, that mess has been going on for a very long time before I got admitted and graduated over 10years!
The students deserve a better deal now!!”
Chinedu Candidus Nsude – “After reading this article, I’m tempted to say we really deserve Buhari. Are you referring to same UNN we all know? At least, fear God na!!”
Agbo Chidera Augustine – The problem with the Nigerian system is rather than harken to geunine cries , we would prefer to cook up laughable defense to support a glaring situation that begs for urgent positive actions.
Chinedu Nwonah – Na mumu dey shit for UNN toilet. My five years stay in UNN, I used the bush. I didn’t have the strength to fight big rats that were bigger than my maternal uncle

People however registered their displeasure with the policy.

Ifeanyi Amaka, through the comment section said – “Why is everything in this country aimed at robbing ordinary Nigerians? One now needs to pay to see their result! To send transcript within or outside the country has always been a fleecing norm! I did a programme remotely at Edinburgh, and one sees their result in real time, and can send transcript electronically to any recipient at no cost whatsoever! In our own country, absurdity walks on four legs!”

Chibuzor Umeh, through the same medium asked – “Very unfortunate situation. So, you have to pay to see results. What happens to the exam fees stated in the school fees list?

Ugwuanyi for his proactiveness, concern and commitment to the welfare, safety and security of indigenes of the state irrespective of where they reside.

Onah revealed that the proactive action taken by Gov. Ugwuanyi spurred other Governors from the South East to send rescue teams to evacuate their people from UNIJOS.

“We say a big thank you to our Governor (Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi) and his SA (on Students Affairs) for their support and immediate action which didn’t just help in evacuating us but it spurred some other states to evacuate their students too. The Association of Enugu State Students in UNIJOS is proud of you (Ugwuanyi) for the fatherly role you played”, he said.

On his part, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the UNIJOS Students Union Government (SUG) Ebenezer Iloadinma, an indigene Enugu State, on behalf of the beneficiaries, equally thanked Gov.
