Obafemi Awolowo University has arisen the hopes of many of it’s students as it announced that resumption date would be announced after a University Senate meeting on Tuesday,19th of January.
Students of the University have been expecting a circular or resumption notice from the University since the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) called off it’s 9 months strike on 23rd of December 2020.
OAU Peeps News Agency in a telephone conversation with the university Public Relations Officer, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju earlier today (Thursday), was able to gather that it is unlikely that students would be asked to resume back to school before the speculated date of 18th January.
The university PRO disclosed that the Senate of the University has a sitting scheduled for the 19th of January and the resumption of academic activities is expected to be one of the top issues that would be up for discussion.
He further urged students of the institution to exercise patience and ignore any rumours flying around until the school management releases date for resumption.
Meanwhile, several OAU students have expressed their frustration with the University’s refusal to announce a resumption date and have continued to urge the school management to make favourable announcements.
