UI Students express Rage over backward academic calendar, Trend on Twitter in Nigeria

Different Students of the Premier University of Ibadan, Oyo, Nigeria and Concerned citizens have gone to the social media to express their grievances and displeasure at the Academic stagnancy and backward academic calendar of the University. The University of Ibadan is currently on the list of trends in Nigeria.

The University of Ibadan is reportedly in the 2018/2019 academic year which is about two sessions behind the normal academic schedule for Varsities. This is due to the incessant strikes of different bodies related to the University and the Current COVID 19 pandemic. 

The Students of the Varsity Expressed their displeasure at the prolonged silence by the University on the resumption of Academic activities after the suspension of the 9month ASUU strike and the Order of the National Universities Commission to reopen Schools from January 18th, 2021.

Here are some reactions of Students: 

In a previous release by the Students Union Government of the University of Ibadan, steps and decisions are being made already on how to ensure a smooth running of Academic activities in the school which will favour both Students and staff of the University.

Full Statement: 



Greatest Uites, The Students' Union will like to commend our patience so far as regards resumption. We hope that we get back to our classes very soon.

In the lastest development today, in a chat with the Students’ Union President, the acting Vice Chancellor has said, "COPDD is meeting on Monday and after which Senate will approve the calendar to complete 2018/2019 and for 2019/2020." We are aware that the Acting Vice Chancellor is making all efforts in making sure that we all return safely to our classes.

In the same vein, 300 and 400 level students from the faculty of Education are expected to commence Teaching Practice exercise on February 1st, 2021. Also, some of our Post Graduate Students have started their project defence process.

Thanks for your patience.
