The University of Imo has been closed due to the Uzodinma and Okorocha crises.
Eastern Palm University, Ogboko’s administration has declared the institution’s closure with immediate effect.
Prof Tola Badejo, the Vice-Chancellor, told journalists in Owerri, the state capital, on Wednesday that the decision was made to protect the lives
of students and workers, as well as the university’s property.
According to Badejo, the decision was made in response to the ownership dispute between Rochas Okorocha and the state government.
“The recent visit by the Imo State Commissioner of Education asking the students to leave was disturbing for the institution,” he said. The recent removal of the university’s entrance billboard by the Imo State Government and its
replacement by government-aided armed policemen with the proposed renamed K. O Mbadiwe university is clearly one action too many.
“Antics and acts by the Imo State Government have interrupted the institution’s academic activities and created an atmosphere of fear and discomfort in a place that is supposed to give young bright minds a sense of intent.
“The decision to shut down was made in response to the Imo State Government’s recent and persistent abuse, as well as its complete disregard for the state High Court’s decision in this matter.
“All students and parents are encouraged to contact the registrar’s office for more information and assistance during this time. At Eastern Palm
University, creating a safe and conducive learning environment is critical to our operations, and it is a parameter we cannot trade.”
