As an ideal, people oriented leader, the Vice Chancellor assumed office with eagles eyes which he immensely priotised the the welfare of Nigerian students (Malabites and malabresses). Owing to this alluring fact, prof. Zana Akpagu never derail or lose sight of his quest. The lack of light, water, bed and other basic amenities for students staying in the hostels has become a thing of the past. He has tremendously transformed the university with mega projects including the asphalting of the university major/feeder roads.
Taken into consideration the fast growing numbers of students as a result of the new faculties, departments and programmes established by the Vice Chancellor and the students quest to stay in the hostel (because of the new face-lift of the hostels), the workaholic, students oriented vice chancellor embark on this project among others to meet the teeming needs.
Prof. Zana I. Akpagu who is nick named “Mr. Projects”, is not a day dream or fun name, but an aftermath of hard work and persistence to solving problems affecting lives.
The new ultramodern hostel is located directly behind hall 8 female hostel and students would begin to move in soon.
