order came from the above directing the VC to hand over to the next in rank in the university.
According to the story, the order was sequel to an indicting record discovered in the institution by the Federal Ministry of Education.
When some journalists contacted the Public Relations Officer of the university, Dr Emmanuel Ojukwu, on the matter in his office,he said he would not want to speak on the issue.
However, some lecturers were seen in clusters on campus discussing the development, but none elected to talk to the press on the matter.
But the Vice Chancellor of the university , Professor Joseph Ahaneku on Monday embarked on inspection of projects in the university, charging the staff to make efforts to improve on the learning facilities in the university.
Ahaneku was particularly fascinated by the giant strides made by the Agriculture Department when he visited the farm which included fish ponds and directed the Acting Head of Department Dr. Chika Ikeogu to design a proposal that will improve the farm generally.
Taking the V-C on inspection of the farm, Ikeogu stated that fund was the major hindrance to its growth as the borehole supplying water to the fish pond was faulty.
She said that the farm would need a reservoir that would serve all seasons .
The fish ponds she explained, contains 1,200 cat fish but if there would be enough water, the ponds would fully engage 4,000 fishes.
The farm also has cassava, maize, oranges and palms.
In his reaction, Ahaneku praised the department but asked the HOD to improve on the place by bringing written proposal which he said he would act on immediately.
He said he was pleased that the students of the department had keyed into the programmes of the university so that the university would not only theorize but do some practicals.
He said: “We still have hope from what I have seen. At this rate the price of fish will soon fall because we plan to build hatchery and the department will secure permission to build feed mill.
“As soon as we receive a written proposal we will act on it”, Ahaneku promised.
“It is a thing of joy that the students have keyed into it. It is a great hope for us. That is a way of complementing what the state government is doing by placing food on the table”.
