Some students of the University of Jos have expressed their joy and surprise at the rate at which infrastructural development is going on in the Naraguta campus as the school resumes academic activities after three months of strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

This joy was expressed by some students from the Faculty of Arts and some students residing in the Abuja hostel as they narrate their surprise and joy.

Eric Dakwo, a 200 Level Student of the Department of Music, narrates that he was surprised to see developments like the Multi-purpose theater getting to completion stage and street lights in the campus environment. He explained that before the strike was embarked upon, the theater was not a good sight to behold, but now it is. He also said that he remembered being afraid to go to the ATM at night because of darkness, but now he can freely move around because there are functioning street lights.

Another student, Timothy Yilwada, a final year student of the law department said that he was really happy to see some of the infrastructural developments such as the Basketball court and the lawn tennis court which have been completed around the Jeremiah Useni Stadium. He said this came to him as a surprise because before he went home for strike, there was no such development.

The developments which was sponsored by the 2018 NEEDS Assessment Intervention Project, have been described by the students as fast paced and they are happy with the rate of infrastructural development going on, and wish it will continue in such manner.
