A statement signed by the institution’s Registrar, Dr. (Mrs) Isoken Ogboro, said the emphasis has become imperative to correct some online and mainstream media reports (not Asaba Metro News) with the headlines “Edo Owned University not for the poor”, a statement she said was credited to the Acting Vice Chancellor, Prof. Emmanuel Aluyor.

While describing the reports as misleading, the Registrar said it may have been initiated by people motivated by partisan hegemonistic interest who found it appropriate to use the media as instruments to push them through.

According to her, the University has an inbuilt scheme for the poor known as “Undergraduate Indigent Students’ Scholarship Awards (ISSA) and the Undergraduate Full Scholarship Awards (UFSA) purely designed to reward excellence and provide access to quality education to indigent students.”

She however condemned in strong terms any allegation or misinformation, either published on the pages of newspapers or orally spread by any person or group of persons to tarnish the good image of the Acting Vice Chancellor and the University.
