New Resumption Date Announced


Today, September 4, 2014, the Senate of our great university revised the 2014/2015 academic calendar. Ebola has nothing to do with it. The action was informed by the two reasons below, among a few others:
1. More time is needed to accommodate the concerns and interests of the Long Vacation Training (LVT) students who have been on campus since you departed for your own long vacation. LVT students are holders of the Nigerian Certificate of Education (NCE) who enroll for their degree programmes and attend classes during long vacations. They need more time to prepare for their examinations and the lecturers too need time to correct and grade the scripts of the examinations. And the students occupy your hostels on the main campus during their session. And they need to pack out before you resume.
2. There will soon be a rash of public holidays in the first week of October (Independence Day, which is October 1 and Sallah festivities, Eid el kabir, on October 5 and 6).
According to the new calendar, students will now return on Sunday October 12, 2014 and from that date, the session takes off smoothly with no further or envisaged disruptions.
The full details are spelt out below:
