The University of Lagos (UNILAG) closed down 2 weeks ago over student protests over lack of light and water. The University sent the students home and shut down its doors.
At the beginning of the week, limited entry was allowed to people with ID cards or with business to carry out within the school premises.
The school has now re-opened but with some stringent measures and with exams starting on May 9. This gives students a little over two weeks with which to get ready for exams.
The circular from the University readmitting the students states thus:
“Completed undertaking form which must be notarized and Parent’s Indemnity Form should be submitted at the various Departments and a clearance obtained. The clearance would be required to gain access into examination halls.”
“Students accommodated in halls of residence are to obtain a clearance from the Departmental Officer which must be presented at the halls of residence to gain access into their rooms from Monday, 2nd May, 2016.”
“Students are expected to visit the University website from Friday, April 22, 2016 and complete the clearance process on or before Monday, May 2, 2016.”
“Examinations would commence from Monday, May 9, 2016. Consequently, students are expected to generate their examination dockets and ensure it is duly endorsed by their Course Advisers between Monday, April 25 and Monday, May 2, 2016.”
“No student would be readmitted without completing the above process.”
“The University would endeavour to provide electricity in the various halls of residence between the hours of 7.00 pm and 7.00 am daily. The boreholes in the hostels would continue to provide water supply to the hostels until normal supply from the Lagos State Water Corporation resumes.”
“Examination commences on Monday, May 9, 2016. Students are to confirm their examination time-table from the various Faculties/Departments.”
