Following the faceoff between the State government and Rochas Foundation, managers of the Eastern Palm University, the management of the institution has been forced to suspend its academic year.
The Vice-Chancellor of the university, professor Tola Badejo who briefed newsmen yesterday, pointed out that the decision to send the students home followed harassment on their students which was becoming too rampant.
He disclosed that the State government recently removed the billboard of the school and replaced it with another bearing K.O Mbadiwe university.
Not only that, even before the suspension of the academic calendar by the school management, agents of the State government he said had moved into the premises, sending the students home.
Badejo has however appealed to both the Rochas Foundation and the Imo government to resolve the matter amicably to enable the students who he said are in their first session to complete their learning on good time.
‘We believe the matter can be resolved among both parties, It not new such an occurrence but the ability to settle it is what matters most.’ Badejo added.
