The University authorities have announced the reopening of the institution which was closed down in the aftermath of the students’ protests of early this month.
The decision to reopen the University was taken at an emergency meeting of the Senate, held on Friday, 29th October, 2021. The students would come to residence on Friday, 5th November, 2021 and continue with their examinations on Saturday, 6th of November, 2021 in tandem with what was previously on ground.
Parents and guardians are hereby advised to inform their children and wards, particularly those who have already finished their examinations to stay at home so that none of them would use the excuse of the reopening of the University to do something untoward.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, has however charged the students to be law abiding and not to engage in anything that could further elongate the session.
It will be recalled that students were already writing the exmainations for the Rain semester before they embarked on protests on the 1st of October, and scuttled the rest of examinations schedule.
