The Management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) on Wednesday asked students of the institution to remain at home following Edo government directive suspending schools resumption till further notice.
The institution’s Acting Registrar, Clarkson Ehigiator disclosed this in a statement, that students earlier billed to resume academic activities were not expected in the halls of residence on Jan. 30 nor be present physically on Feb.1.
The Acting Registrar said while management awaited a new directive from the government, the University of Benin acknowledged the sacrifices made by students and their parents during the most challenging period.
The statement reads in part, “The University of Benin as a Federal Institution, located in Benin City, must adhere to all directives of the Edo state government.
”The governor of the state announced the postponement of Schools resumption from Jan. 18, 2021 which will be reviewed on Feb.1.
“The Academic calendar remains unchanged as online classes will fully commence.
“The University’s Management is committed to ensuring the provision of quality education to our own dear students without compromising on our collective safety”.
”Management also recognises that students are eager to return to school for their academic activities, all things possible are being done to actualise that objective as the interest of the students remains paramount,” Ehigiator added.
