Foreign citizens who are students in the country and couldn’t go homes during this time of world pandemic where the mandate to stay in their various hostels or rented apartments outside the campus.
Again mandatory all institutions partake in the online lectures which there would be the need for data to access has placed a financial burden on the foreign students and the SRC as a whole .” If they can’t get money to buy food to eat how much more can they get money to buy airtime for online learning “ he said.
Jayee University College students representative council (JUC SRC) have made provision to deliver food items, drinks and others for such students but the cost involved isn’t easy and we, therefore, call the various embassies to help.
Also, we plead that government officials should look back to the universities in this country in terms of donations so that they can continue to help these foreign students and all students in school hostels who are short of relieve items.
