OAU resumption date has not been announced – management warns students. See details below.
The attention of the authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife, has been drawn to a circular purportedly issued and signed by the University Registrar which has gone viral. 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.
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.
Accordingly, we want to use this medium to urge our students to remain calm, and await authentic information from the University Management as soon as the Federal Government gives the go-ahead to reopen the University.
We appreciate the patience of our students and we advise them to always remain safe.
