NOUN resumes academic activities tomorrow
The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) will resume academic activities tomorrow, October 12, following the decision of the Federal Government to re-open all academic institutions.
The university had suspended academic activities on March 20, 2020 following the outbreak of coronavirus in the country.
NOUN Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Ibrahim Sheme, said in a statement that the university management has directed all members of staff to resume duty tomorrow.
According to him, the university registrar, Mr. Felix I. Edoka, had advised staffers to strictly abide by all the known COVID-19 safety protocols while at work, saying any breach will not be tolerated.
He added that the registrar informed all deans, directors and heads of unit to ensure compliance with both the resumption and the safety measures.
NOUN students were able to continue with their studies from home during the six-month lockdown, the university being an Open and Distance Learning (ODL) institution, which requires no classroom attendance.
