UNILAG Resumption: Students Lament Uncertainties

By Abdulafeez Olaitan, UNILAG


Undergraduates of the University of Lagos have expressed concerns regarding the uncertainties surrounding the nature of resumption.


Recall that a previous post by Edugist said UNILAG undergraduates was set to resume on 10th May, 2021. However, what is yet to be known is whether the resumption will be physical or online.


Undergraduates have taken to their social media to express dissatisfaction with any plans of the University to continue academic activities online.


Though the management of the University claim to be following the pandemic prevention protocol, students have been quick to remind that other federal universities across the country have resumed activities physically.


Also, students have pointed out that higher institutions in the University environs have also commenced activities accordingly. When a student claimed that the University is taking measures against the spread of the virus, another countered saying: “no virus in YABATECH or FCE AKOKA?”


Another undergraduate enquired: “I saw a post online that DSA announced that 74% lecturers voted for online classes and we should wait for the final decision by Wednesday 28th. Please how true is this?”


A possibility of physical resumption has it that the hostels will not be open to accommodate students for the second semester which is adding to students’ distress.


The DSA has since directed students to discard rumours and await official announcement from the management.
