The members of the Imo State House of Assembly have urged the
Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, through a motion sponsored by the
member representing Ezinihitte Mbaise State constituency Hon. Obioma
Ekennia to declare state of emergency on Imo State University Law
School and others which have lost their accreditation or not yet
They also resolved that, all materials and equipment required for the
smooth running of those facilities were put in place to ensure that
those faculties were given accreditation. Kicking starting the debate
which did not have any dissenting voice to it, Hon. Ekennia pointed
out that, the law faculty of Imo State University was de-accredited by
the Council for Legal Education due to inadequate teaching personnel
and shortfalls of other facilities required by the regulating body. He
admitted that, even though there are lots of projects going on in the
state, it is equally important that the issue of accreditation of
course in the university be paid urgent attention, stressing that, the
de-accreditation of the law school was a source of embarrassment to
the government, him, as well as other citizens of the state.
Other lawmakers who spoke in favour of the motion opined that, amongst
all the faculties in IMSU, it was the faculty that has produced many
first-class materials in the Nigerian Law School, adding that, since
it is the foremost faculty, it is the face of the university and
called on well meaning citizens of the state to rally round with the
government to redeem the faculty and others.
They went further to state that, the law faculty did not just
degenerate, pointing out that previous administrations allowed the
school to degenerate to that pitiable state and urged the present
government of Owelle Rochas Okorocha to rise up to the challenge and
present itself as a government that is responsible and responsive to
the yearnings of the people.

Consequent upon that, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Uwajumogu
directed the standing committee on Education to interface with the
management of IMSU and then furnish the Honourable House with all the
details of what has prevented the law faculty and other faculties from
being accredited to enable the House interface with the Governor to
ensure that the declaration of state of emergency is carried out.
