However, the Public Relations Officer of the Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki, Mr Patrick Itumo, in an interview with The PUNCH correspondent, said the university received N200m as monthly subvention but paid N30m to the state government as tax.

He said, “Our monthly subvention from the state government during ex-governor Martin Elechi’s administration was N240m. However, it has since been reduced to N200m under the current state government and from the N200m; we pay a tax of N30m. What this means is that we are only left with N170m monthly as subvention.

“Funding for the institution is inadequate and it cannot take the institution anywhere. This is because there are so many areas begging for attention. The daily running of the university requires funds.”

The university’s ASUU Chairman, Dr Ikechukwu Igweenyi, said the students had no hostels, lecturers lacked adequate office accommodation while the lecture halls were not well-furnished.
