Students of Madonna University Okija have been asking the school management to help renovate some of their dilapidated hostels for a while now, but it seems nothing has been done about it.
Photos showing how bad and unhealthy the school hostels look have since gone viral on social media. A Facebook user identified as Nwankwo Ogbonna took to the platform to speak about the deplorable state of hostels in some Nigerian Universities and how it affects the students. Read below.
“This is why most Nigerian graduates are useless and unproductive because they are the products of their environments.
This is the deplorable state of the almighty Madonna university Okija hostels, a private university for that matter and one of the expensive Universities in Nigeria. Despite the huge fees collected by the school the management can not create a conducive learning environment for their students.
And these graduates and undergraduates of the school don’t see anything wrong in these things that’s why they can live here happily and suffering.
Our people have lost it all , that is why private schools should not be left in the hands of Nigerian individuals because they are like church owners now , just make money and return nothing , is very pathetic ,for these dilapidated and pig like hostels are not fit to house humans.

Life in Madonna University Nigeria is a life in the jungle. The internally displaced people in the Northeast may be living a higher standard of life than the students of Madonna University.
The environment of Madonna University particularly the hostels are far worse than a bokoharam camp. The attention of the management has been drawn to the poor living conditions of the students, but Fr. Edeh and his clueless cabal have no interest in improving the living situation of the students.
He collects huge amounts of money as school fees running into millions just to gather firm for himself. He derives joy in building big churches and gathering Bishops and white people who go to Elele to sing praises to the name of Fr. Edeh. After singing his praises, he pays them in millions. Those Bishops who are guilty of this fact, cannot deny it.
If Fr. Edeh is your friend and you are a Bishop for God and for humanity, tell your friend the truth.
In most cases he deceives the white people and makes them believe that the students are poor orphans and less privileged he is catering for. Many opinions leaders believe that he collects millions of dollars on accounts of this very deceit from the western world.
The Nigerian Government and NUC are therefore called upon to come to the rescue of Madonna University students. “Our hostels are Death Traps”, students cry. Three hostels in Okija Campus (St Thomas, OSH and St Peters) are at the verge of collapsing.
NUC should stop collecting bribes from Fr. Edeh and do their job in the interest of young Nigerians who are living like animals in the name of being students of a private University.
The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria should stop singing the praises Fr. Edeh and ask him to stop being hypocritical and do the right thing instead of always cutting corners and bribing people men in authority.
NUC should ask him to reduce the number of mentally deranged people who are working in the University especially this current newly recruited uneducated boys from Osisatech polytechnic. We have never seen where OND holders are made managers of a University except in Madonna.
Nigerians, save Madonna Students.
