KIU, Western Campus – Students at the Western Campus have left school, in line with the Presidential directive in the Coronavirus State-of-the-Nation address.
The development was confirmed in an emergency university management meeting. However, resident students from the School of Nursing Sciences have left today, in an arrangement by the University administration to give time to students who might not have had transport to their respective homes to organize themselves.
The Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor Western Campus, Prof. Jude Diji Chukwuemeka, said students were required to go back to their respective homes as the country grapples with the reality of a potential Coronavirus outbreak.
The directive also covers students who are in the satellite training centres like the regional referral hospitals especially those from the school of Nursing. They have been advised to go directly to their respective homes.
All students have been provided with both soft and hard copy notes to ensure that they do not miss out on their academic engagements, as we deal with this unprecedented development.
However, with other academic activities like marking the recently done Continuous Assessment Tests (CATs), staff will be required to continue working, under stringent health guidelines though.
