Obafemi Awolowo University Still Remains Close-Management
The Management of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has denied reports on social media indicating that the institution has resumed.
A purported circular issued and signed by the University Registrar, stating that the management of the institution has order students to resume has gone viral.
The Public Relations Officer of the University, Abiodun Olarewaju, in a statement made available to news men debunked such circular, tagging it as fake, malicious both in content and context and it should be disregarded in its entirety.
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 disregard in its entirety.”
Olarewaju called on students of the institution to remain calm, and wait and wait for authentic information from the University Management as soon as the Federal Government gives the directives to reopen the University.
“We appreciate the patience of our students, and we advise them to always remain safe,” he said.
The OAU, like every other institution in the country, has been shut down since March, a directive given by the Federal Government in order to curb and contain the spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
