The VC in the statement stated that the number of fellowships in the varsity’s three campuses portended crisis.

The statement listed the four approved religious bodies to include Catholic, Anglican, Joint Christian Campus Fellowship and Our Saviours Chapel, as it indicated that there could be crisis among the students if the fellowship centres were not reduced.

The vice-chancellor said the number of religious centres in the institution was alarming, especially in Asaba campus totaling over 20. He stated that the figure tripled when added with that of Asaba campus.

It was gathered that the varsity’s authorities had been worried over the rise in fellowship centres in the Abraka main campus and the situation gave rise to crimes.
