Reference is made to the memo from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (APF) of July, 2017 on the above subject and the subsequent closure of the University for two (2)
weeks as from 14th to 21st August, 2017.
I write to inform you that after consultations it has been directed that all public universities re-open and resume their activities on MONDAY 28th AUGUST, 2017 and not Monday 21st August, 2017.
The staff shall, therefore, resume duty on Monday 28th August, 2017 at 8.00 a.m., and all academic activities scheduled for 21st August shall commence on 28th August, 2017. However, the reporting dates for the new and continuing students who were to report after 28th August, 2017 remain unchanged.
The webmaster is hereby directed to post this information on all University online forums and all Deans/Directors/Chairmen/Heads are requested to convey the same message to staff and students in their respective Schools/Departments/Directorates and Units/Sections.
We apologise for any inconveniences caused.
