He revealed that, several steps have been taken to talk to the defendants to allow the case heard quickly and smoothly without further delays.
According to him, the absence of SRC and NUGS executives is affecting the students badly and the other campuses of the University as there is no Unifified SRC in place to cater for the wellbeing of the students.
He also made a passionate appeal to all departmental and hall executives to push for quicker adjudication of the case.
