Malam Auwalu Umar, Director, Public Affairs Directorate of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, says the institution retained the N90 official cost of hostel bed-space, fixed 40 years ago, to make things easy for students.

Speaking to a Siggy.ng, Umar said in spite of the ridiculously low amount being charged, the institution was able to provide hostel to 35 per cent of its over 55,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students.

He said that as part of efforts to complement the efforts of the institution, a private firm, BUA Group, and the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), had assisted in constructing additional hostels in the university.

Corroborating the statement of the Director, Abubakar-Sadeeq Ali, President, Students Representative Council (SRC), said N90 was the fee charged for bed-space, but there was another N7,000, being amount charged for ‘hostel maintenance’.

However, a female undergraduate student who spoke to Siggy.ng on condition of anonymity, said most of the rooms were always congested.

The student, who resides at Suleiman Hall within the main campus, said a room of four students hosted up to eight people.

“A room meant for two students hosts about five people, while a room meant for eight students accommodates between 12 and 13 people,” she added.

According to her, some students sub-let their bed-spaces, charging between N15, 000 and N35, 000, depending on the room and the hall.

Meanwhile, the private sector is giving a helping hand in the construction of hostels to complement the effort of the management of the institution.

Malam Mohammed Danfulani, Manager of hostels owned by a non-governmental organization, ‘Near Foundation’, told NAN that apart from shelter, the Foundation also fed the students during academic session.

According to him, the Foundation operates separate hostels for female and male students at ABU main campus, Samaru, Zaria.

Mr Caleb Akaa, Part three student of Business Administration, said he had stayed in the hostel for three different sessions.

“In the morning, we were served tea with eggs or chips, while the dinner is rice with salad, and sometimes, other different foods and a cup of drink,’’ he said.
