The students of Institute of Management and Technology (IMT),Enugu, have appealed to management and authorities of the institution to renovate lecture halls, construct motorable roads, and also provide pipe borne water for the school community.

The students who made known their ordeal to our correspondents when they visited the school said all these are necessary to create conducive environment for teaching and learning.

For instance, a student of the Department of Public Administration, Uche Attah, complained on how she was drenched by rain in the hall during one of her examinations.

"I was really frustrated during one of my examinations as I was drenched by rain and could not concentrate on what I was writing. I complained and I was asked to look for another seat and continue with what I was writing."

She further highlighted how she fell inside a pothole filled with mud water while rushing to lectures as a result of bad roads in the school premises.

"I am pleading with the school authorities to come to our aid because the situation has got out of hand and it's hindering the good performance of the students, academically and otherwise," she stated.

Also, Ebere Onu, another student said that the well water which they bathe with itches their bodies.

"The well water which we have when bathe with itches the body making us buy kerosene all the time, as there is incessant power cut. This eats half of our pocket money and eliminates the spirit of saving," she stated.

Ebere further pleaded with the school authorities to come to their aid, stating that it is mostly the poor students in the school that are really affected.

"Providing pipe borne water for us will boost students’ performance academically and create enabling environment for learning."
