Caleb University in Nigeria ranked among the best private universities around. But if feelers at our disposal are anything to go by, the tertiary institution that charges each student N505,000 per session is nothing but a money making venture established by its owner, Prince Oladega Adebogun, who is also chairman of First City Global Insurance Brokers Ltd , to make money but cares less about the welfare of the students.
According to a source who disclosed to us the inhuman treatment faced by the
students despite the huge amount of money being charged by the management of the
institution, the service offered is nothing to write home about, and definitely
not commensurate to the money being paid as fees.
The source said the institution that always wants its students to look decent
in their suits and claims to teach them morals, is conducive for learning. We
learnt that the water supply system in the institution is nothing to write home
about because the students always go through great stress on a daily basis to
get water to bath and do their normal daily chores.
The issue of electricity is another sore point on the campus of Caleb
University, as the students are said to always go to bed without light nearly
everyday, which makes it difficult for them to study at night.
Not only these. Despite the fact that each student pays more than N100,000
for accommodation, the school authority, instead to providing spacious space
that can accommodate two people in a room, the students are packed five in a
room while the main lecture hall is said not to have good ventilation, with
insects seen all over the campus.
The institution’s management is said to be so brutal to the students, to the
extent that the students are not allowed to form student union government and
any attempt to form one may lead to outright expulsion.(Global News Ng)
