Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, IAUE Senate has approved the extension of study time for library users, as part of its efforts to enhance reading culture among students.
At the Senate meeting of Wednesday February 21, 2018, the Vice-Chancellor of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Professor Ozo-Mekuri Ndimele had lamented the poor reading culture among students and added that no single student was found at the classrooms when he and other principal officers of the university visited the classrooms past 10pm.

Professor Ndimele directed the University Librarian to work out a shift roster for staff of the department to accommodate the extension of the study time for students at the library.
He admonished students to stop stealing electric bulbs fixed for their usage and directed that the health centre be lit for patients
