OAU Disowns Circular On Varsity Reopening

The management of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, has asked the public to disregard a circular purportedly issued and signed by the university’s Registrar on reopening plans.

Recall that the National Universities Commission (NUC) had in March ordered the closure of the university in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement issued by the Public Relations Officer of the university, Abiodun Olarewaju, on Tuesday, he noted that the Federal Government had not reversed the order.

“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 disregarded in its entirety,” the statement read in part.

“Obafemi Awolowo University is a Federal Government-owned institution and the instruction to go on recess in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, in the month of March 2020, by the Federal Government has not been reversed.”
