The Male Students of Ahmadu Bello University (returning and new) are clearly not smiling with the ABU management over the ongoing hostel allocation for male students which started on 22nd January 2020 and many have turned to social media to express their frustrations as the Student Representative Council SRC has promised to resolve the matter.
In a series of tweets and Facebook messages monitored by Theabusites.com, the students alleged that most of the rooms were taken out from the system and reserved for “special students” even before the portal was open and are demanding an explanation from their Representatives – the ABU Students representatives Council – ABUSRC.
