Photos: See the state of the block of flats former President Nnamdi Azikiwe built for UNN

Nigeria's First President, Nnamdi Azikiwe was kind enough to build these blocks of flats aka Zik Blocks and handed over to the management of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, Enugu state. Over the years, the estate which comprises of 22 student hostels with restaurants and a nursing mothers hostel building, have been left abandoned and are deteriorating daily. More photos after the cut...

Imagine, see somebody's effort. We don't appreciate things. They should have just renovated the thing.

BONARIO NNAGS said...

That is Zik's flat. Lindiway there has been a long legal battle between the school authority and the family of late Owelle of Onitsha. On many occasions the school has tried renovating the blocks of flat to get students use them but to no avail due to the claim to the actual owner(s) of the buildings.
The school resorted to constructing hostels especially for the female students inside school while these ones are left in this condition.

It's appalling, Each administration that comes in,only come to embezzle money.. Thank God they have stopped allocating student to that graveyard.

How will it not be in that state when he was greedy and selfish,while awolowo gave his people free education with same allocation

Anonymous said...

Lmao. UNN. 1 year to go and I'm outta ds hell-hole. Btw, there are issues concerning that building, so u cnt blame d sch entirely. The family of zik or so, is fighting for d place, so... ๐Ÿ˜

Lizzy Asanwa Atutupoyoyo said...

Hrm ziks flat is worse o...no comparism to Franco one bit

olayinka femi said...

Why must you blame govt at everything is it govt that needs to renovate the building that is meant for the school and is the school not getting allocation and there is a battle between the school and the Azikwe family over the property so stop blaming govt either the present one or the past it is not their responsibility to renovate school building

Anonymous said...

That building is in dispute between the school and Azikiwe's.

Sandra Ena lewis said...

No maintenance culture

May be true but as a Super Lion I low that the same blocks of hostels was give out to students during my 4 years in skl. So wetin concern Zik family and maintenance?

The building is still standing strong! The cement used in erecting this building is more standard and superior to the cement we have now in Nigeria!

During our school days 2002-2006.Ziks flats was the "happening" hostel, so full of life,looking at these pictures do remind me of my precious Block C1.Its a pity that it's in such a state.

Biko get facts right. The school paused renovation because there was a form of breach of contract by the Zik children so...

queenette Okeke said...

Larger, nobody stays there again they stopped allocating it like two years ago

nosike anierobi said...

Dude! The confidence you use while spilling bullshit is outrageous! I graduated from UNN in 2011 and I stay in zik flat block D. Yes it already had so much rot but No its not under some tussle with who over you alleged. Don't say things you don't know just to have an opinion! Keep quiet sometimes!

Nigerians and poor maintenance culture!

They are waiting for him to come and renovate it na..

Onumebgu Mary said...

Bonario Is very very correct. Plus am lioness who just became a super lioness in the den. The hostel is being dragged by Azikiwe's wife and children at the moment. So the hostel is having legal issues.

Ahhh... this is really sad. Had soo many good times here. A school should be a place you can take your kids years after and point and say 'that was my hostel', etc. They are destroying our history. Heard abt the ish between the schl and d family tho. Hope they resolve it. God dey.
