… Insists Lectures will only hold Online
By Daniel Ayantoye
Management of University of Ibadan (UI) has debunked a publication trending on social media that the Institution has allocated Students into their respective Halls of Residence for them to resume back to Campus.
The publication also stated that the portal has opened and students are expected to make payments.
The citadel of learning has however distance itself from the publication; urging students and the general public to disregard such information.
The Institution said this in a statement signed by the Director of Public Communication, Olatunji Oladejo and made available to CAMPUS FOCUS on Thursday.
The statement reads, “Management has noted the information trending on the social media indicating that the University has published allocation of students into their respective Halls of Residence and students are expected to make payments.
“The University hereby wishes to inform the new students and the general public to disregard the information as STUDENT REGISTRATION PORTAL HAS NOT BEEN OPENED. Kindly beware!
“Management wishes to restate as contained in the University’s Official Bulletin No. 4353 of 14 January, 2021 entitled APPROVED REVISED ACADEMIC CALENDAR FOR 2018/2019 as follows: “In approving the Calendar, Senate noted the prevailing circumstances occasioned by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to comply with the protocols established for the control of the spread of the pandemic. It, therefore, agreed that the 2020/2021 First Semester Lectures will be delivered online. In this regard, “NO STUDENT WILL BE ACCOMMODATED ON CAMPUS.”
According to the statement, “New students are to please note that the opening of the registration portal and the orientation programme for 2020/2021 session will commence on or before Saturday, 20 February, 2021.
“Details of Registration Procedure/Guideline will be available on the University website www.ui.edu.ng soon.” He added.
