We're Yet To Resume - OAU Debunks Resumption Rumour
The management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, has yesterday disowned a circular purportedly “issued and signed by the University Registrar” on reopening plans, the resumption date for academic activities in the school will be September 21. However, the school has classified the circular as false.
A release by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Abiodun Olarewaju said the Federal Government that shut the institution in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic has not reversed the order.
The statement was titled ‘OAU yet to resume’.
The statement read in part, “The university management wishes to officially inform our students at all levels, their parents and guardians, that the said circular is fake and malicious both in content and context and it should be disregarded in its entirety.
“Obafemi Awolowo University is a Federal Government-owned institution and the instruction to go on recess in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, in the month of March 2020, by the Federal Government has not been reversed.
“Accordingly, we want to use this medium to urge our students to remain calm, and await authentic information from the university management as soon as the Federal Government gives the go-ahead to reopen the University.”
It will be recalled that OAU suspended academic activities like other institutions as a result of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.
