COVID-19: FUNAAB states position on Jan 18 resumption

The Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, (FUNAAB), has said that it would resume academic activities on Jan. 18, in compliance with the directives of the Federal Government.

the Academic Staff Union of Universities on Tuesday insisted that Nigerian universities in the country are not ready to re-open at the moment.

According to the Union,” it is difficult to return to classes in the middle of a second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.”


However, The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Felix Salako, while addressing a press conference on Tuesday, in Abeokuta said the university was ready to cope with the challenges posed by COVID-19, NAN reports.

Salako maintained that the university was quite ready to resume full activities as measures had been put in place, including COVID-19 protocols as stipulated by the Federal Government.

He said it was mischievous and political for any lecturer to go to the media to say that the university was not ready for academic activities, adding that it was a personal decision of the lecturer to think that the school could not resume full academic activities.

The vice chancellor also said the university would be running what he described as “hybrid” teaching, a mix of physical and virtual learning, while no fewer than 150 solar panels had been installed in some of the buildings, to provide alternative sources of electricity and facilitate the planned hybrid system of learning delivery.

“The virtual learning will take care of large classes, like the part one students, but for fewer classes, we have large halls to accommodate the students”, he said.
