IMSU Public Relations Officer Ralph Njoku issued the statement to newsmen on Monday in Owerri.
It was the decision taken by management that continued delays would result in the school losing students who were eager for education, particularly applicants who had yet to become matriculated.
However, he said that the school has no issue with ASSU and that the decision was to prevent any action to shortchange the next generation.
He said: “The management has decided to open the university for academic activities. We don’t have any issue with ASSU we just open the school for academic activities. Lecturers who are willing will now come to start lecturing.”
He said that the management took the decision in order not to shortchange the next generation.
He said: “just like the 2022 applicants, we have not even matriculated them and we are coming up with 2022/2023, if we keep delaying we will lose so many people who are desirous of University education. So, we felt it is time to hold the bull by the horn.”
