MOUTHPIECE NGR reports that the management of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, has announced the continuation of academic activities for the 2021/2022 academic session.
In a circular signed by the Registrar of the University, Dr. Kayode Ogunleye, on Monday, titled, “Release to Staff and Students: Continuation of the First Semester of the 2021/2022 Academic Session”, the management said that academic activities would resume on Thursday, August 18, 2022.
The statement, copied to major principal officials of the school, read in part, “Upon the directive of the Visitor to the university, the management, hereby, informs all staff and students that the university will continue its academic activities for the first semester of the 2021/2022 academic session on Thursday, August 18, 2022.
It stated further that the amended academic calendar for the semester will soon be made available, urging staff and students to abide by the directive.
“On behalf of the Acting Vice Chancellor, Prof M. 0. Liasu, I welcome all students back to the campus and wish them a crisis-free semester.”
Recall that MOUTHPIECE NGR had earlier reported that the management announced May 26, 2022 as official resumption of academic activities some weeks ago.
But the unions (ASUU & JAC) which had been on strike for the past six months refused to resume academic activities despite the school management order.
Although, there have been several efforts from government to make the unions resolve all wrangling issues that may be stopping academic activities on campus with the recent meeting the unions held last month with Oyo government.
