UNIBEN cancels resumption over 2nd COVID-19 wave

The University of Benin has cancelled proposed resumption in the wake of Edo state government’s directive to half reopening of schools amidst concern about a second wave of coronavirus pandemic.

Reopening of schools has been postponed from January 18 and will come under review by February 1, governor Godwin Obaseki announced.

“Students of the University of Benin are, therefore, not expected in the halls of residence on January 30 nor be present physically on February 1, while Management awaits a new directive from the state Government,” the school’s acting registrar Clarkson Ehigiator said in a statement.

He said the school’s academic calendar remains unchanged as on-line classes will fully commence.
