Amanyire advises the students affected by the closure to remain calm and avoid getting involved in the ownership wrangles.  
Martin Kafanta Atukwase, the Public Relations Officer of the faction allied to Honest Wilkins Natukwasa, says that the closure of the university is suffocating the students’ academic future

Kabushenga insists that he is not shaken by any situation on the ground because he is fighting for his property. Kabushenga also says that validation must happen in order to eliminate some students he described as drunkards.
