The Lagos State University (LASU) has disclosed some guidelines that will be operational as students of the University prepare to return to campus.
The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun revealed that the students will resume in batches.
According to Prof. Fagbohun who spoke on Monday during a radio programme on Eko 89.7 FM, students in 400, 500 and 600 levels would be the first to resume. Later, other students in the 300 and 200 levels of their studies will also resume.
The VC explained further that the students will undergo two months of intensive lecture before writing examinations.
Full COVID-19 protocols will be in place while compliance will be expected to be total, the VC added.
He said, “A gradual phasing has been done for our students’ resumption. Students in 400 to 600 levels would resume for a duration of two months with an intensive lecture starting from 9 am to 3 pm for those that reside off-campus.
“After the completion of 400 to 600 levels’ resumption, students in 200 and 300 levels are to resume for a two-month lecture before the commencement of their examinations.
“Resumption of the students in 200 and 300 levels is divided into different days of the week.
On Mondays and Wednesdays, 300-level students would be on campus for lectures. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, 200-level students would be on campus. This is in order to maintain social distancing and to protect the lives of the students of Lagos State University and the staff.
“In line with the NCDC requirement for medical facilities, LASU has a COVID-19 team to keep the university on toes in ensuring compliance.
“Isolation places have been provided in the University. With the prepared roadmap, LASU is prepared to accommodate students and visitors.”
The LASU VC, Prof Fagbohun, however, didn’t reveal a specific date for the resumption of students but Naija News recalls the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had on Saturday, 29th August, 2020 announced that tertiary institutions in the state will be allowed to reopen as from September 14, 2020.
