To make learning easier for students of the Nigeria Law School Abuja, an entrepreneur has launched a private hostel equipped with internet facilities for them.
The initiator of the project and owner of Williams Courtyard Apartment, Mrs. Efe Egbari-Davis while inaugurating the hostel, said the aim was to meet a demand, provide service and make learning easier.
In a chat with journalists at the unveiling of the facilities in Bwari Area Council, Abuja, Egbari-Davis said: “Williams Courtyard is a hostel and it is private and that is why we have services that will help students do better.
“We are going to be providing accommodation and services and a few people have expressed interest in certain things that they will like.
“Here, we have free Wifi, internet and CCTV. You know so many good security and so on. Other services that we will have are the gym, restaurants and these will be open to the public. The restaurant is mostly Nigerian food and some continental.”
She added: “We are trying to keep the price reasonable within what the students can afford. So we find out what is going on and what they have around the area. It is just at minimum cost only to make them come to somewhere that is comfortable.
“The reason behind the hostel is supply and demand. On my own part, I am an investor, I looked at my environment and saw what the needs are. I just try to provide a service and meet those demands.
“There are people who have made their interest, I have done my research and I am trying to fulfil that need. There are hostels and if you want to be two or three in a room. We have a lot of matured individuals and as we all know, anybody can decide to go back to school to study law, so, we have people in government and their children at the same time in the law school.
“Law school is after you have graduated and you have to meet up with the requirements and regulations. So that is what it is. We are simply here to meet a demand. That is it.”
