    Nnamdi Azikiwe University is a federal school and is located at Awka the capital of Anambra State.
    The federal and state government should please take responsibility for the construction of Ifite road.
    If something is not done soon the state of the road will worsen and may delay students’ attendance to lectures and other school activities.
    Good quality education requires conducive environment. And this does not support the conducive environment needed for students to acquire standard education in Nigeria.

    What is the meaning of this?. This alone would make the students sit back in their rooms rather than going to school. The school management needs to call on the government to do something. They should both work hand in hand

  9. The government should see to it in order for students to continue their activities and lectures in school because its so discouraging when you see an area like this…one has to think of different things before considering how to leave an environment like this

  26. OMG!
    It is a pity to see that the government are claiming not to have seen this dehumanizing condition that students sometimes go through.
    How can the government claim good governance when issues like this is not attended to or little is done about it.
    It is high time, the government sees the plight of the masses and the students in particular as to rectify this issue.
    Education cannot work in a vaccum of discomfort, painstaking experience and laxity.
    So I humbly suggest that to achieve good educational value on the side of the students and the lecturers comfort also, then Ifite road as mentioned above have to reconstructed as soon as possible.
