Postponement of Second Semester Examinations

Subject: Postponement of Second Semester Examinations
The University Community (Staff, Students and Parents) may recall the various
policies put in place by Management to address the disruption in Academic
Activities occasioned by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
These include the startup at short notice of online teaching for students,
virtual matriculation for students admitted 2019/2020 along with processing and
release of first semester results. All these came at great cost and sacrifice
both on the part of Management and Staff of the University.
In the spirit of continuous service delivery inspite of the disruption,
Management had proposed a dateline of Monday, July 13, 2020 for second semester
examinations to be conducted online. However due to circumstances beyond our
control, the examinations were shifted to Monday, July 27th, 2020.
However, as much as Management tried to make the date realistic, the reality on
ground occasioned by
1. The logistics to deploy the Learning Management System needed to conduct a
successful and hitch free examinations.
2. Training of staff and students.
3. Ensuring that all students acquire laptop with requisite specifications
4. Changes in manner of processing questions,
have regrettably occassioned another postponement of the second semester
In line with the foregoing therefore, I write to inform you that the second
semester examinations will now start on Monday, August 10, 2020.
Management regrets all inconveniences caused by this Postponement. Management is
rather appealing to students to use this opportunity to revise adequately for
the examinations, appeal to seize the opportunity provided by the university to
procure laptops for their wards and make their fee payment up to 80% as approved
by the Vice Chancellor.
I appeal to the University Community to please understand and bear with
Management as we try to be creative and dynamic in the midst of all these
disruption occassioned by the situation the world finds itself.
