• ABU Resumption Date for 2019/2020 Session is Out.

    The management of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria has announced that the resumption date for the reopening of the institution for academic activities has been fixed for Monday, 25th January 2021 subject to review by the Federal Government.

    According to a statement signed by the Director of Public Affairs of the ABU, Mallam Auwal Umar, the Senate of the University at its 501st (Special) Meeting held on Tuesday approved the resumption date.

    The statement 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.”

    It added that the reopening of the university would be on a phased basis.

    The statement said the first phase of resumption would include, all graduating/final-year students, 100 and 200 level students, all clinical medical students, and all postgraduate students to be handled virtually using online ICT-supported blended teaching and learning arrangement.

    The second phase, the statement added, would comprise all other non-graduating classes, 300 level in the case of a four-year degree programme, 300 and 400 levels in the case of a five-year degree programme as well as 300, 400 and 500 levels in the case of a six-year degree programme.

    It added that “It should be noted that 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.

    “Equally, Management would take all necessary actions to strengthen the security architecture of the University and assure the University community of adequate safety and security.”

    Best of luck To You all…
