The Senate of the Ahmadu Bello University has approved Monday, January 25th, 2021 as the resumption date for academic activities in the university.

This was disclosed in a statement issued by the Director of Public Affairs of the ABU, Mallam Auwal Umar, noting that the date was subject to review by the Federal Government.

According to the statement titled, ‘Ahmadu Bello University fixes January 25 for reopening,’ the resumption date was ratified by the University Senate at its 501st meeting on Tuesday.

The statement partly read, “The 2019/2020 academic session would be completed based on the adjusted calendar as approved by the Senate.

“The decision to reopen the University followed the suspension of ASUU strike, and the directive by National Universities Commission based on the advisory/clearance by the Presidential Taskforce on COVID- 19 that Universities could reopen as from 18th January 2021 under strict observance of COVID-19 protocols.”

According the statement, the reopening of the institution would be on a phased basis.

It further stated, “All non-pharmaceutical COVID-19 protocols would be strictly observed anywhere on campus and every student must submit online an undertaking to abide by all the COVID-19 protocols both within and outside the Campus. Students who failed to complete and submit this form online will not be able to print their exams card.

“In addition, the University Management would, within the limit of its resources, support the University Health Service with the provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and a Holding Bay to ensure safe handling of any suspected cases.”
