Students of the Akwa Ibom State College of Education, Afaha Nsit, have decried the deplorable conditions of the school environment which according to them has made learning within the school premises unconducive.

The students made this known on Wednesday when some investigative journalists visited the school.

Interacting with journalists, the students lamented that aside from fears of being bitten by reptiles on their way to lectures, the deplorable state of the college’s internal roads calls for urgent attention by the Government.

They blamed the terrible state of the college on the nonchalant attitude of the school Management towards the welfare of students.

The team called on the management of the college to mow the overgrown grasses that are fast enveloping the college and also pleaded with the state Government to mobilize the Construction Company handling the abandoned internal road projects within the College back on site for completion.

As at the time of visit to the College, the School environment has already been taken over by wild grasses which could attract reptiles, rodents, and insects.

While several efforts to speak with the Provost proved unsuccessful.
