UNIBEN is ready to resume full academic activities -VC

Management of the University of Benin in Benin City (UNIBEN), Edo State, yesterday, announced that the institution will resume for the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 academic sessions on January 30, 2021.

This was disclosed in a circular issued by the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Benedicta Ehanire, after a meeting of the University’s Senate.

It directed old and new students of the institution, who were sent home on February 20, 2020, before the March 9, 2020 strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), to return for academic activities.

The management said 2019/20 first semester would run until April 1, 2021, while second semester would commence on April 5, 2021.

It, however, cautioned all returning students, to adhere strictly to COVID-19 protocols, including compulsory wearing of face masks, use of hand sanitisers and keeping physical distancing.
