Management of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) said a news report going viral on the social media that the University’s stream A of the 2022/2023 session would resume on Monday, September 18, 2023 is fake.
Registrar of the University, Mufutau Adesina lbrahim, in a press release made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Ado-Ekiti, clarified that the institution remains closed till further notice in honour of late Modupe Deborah Atanda, a 200L student who was recently killed on the campus by unknown assailants.
The statement, which was directly addressed to students of FUOYE, was entitled: DISCLAIMER ON RESUMPTION DATE FOR STREAM ‘A’ STUDENTS.
It reads in part “ l write on behalf of the University Management to request all students particularly, stream ‘A’ students to disregard the news of resumption of academic activities being peddled on the social media.
The University is still mourning our beloved Modupe Deborah Atanda whom we lost recently and the decision to reopen the University is yet to be taken.
“The fake circular emanated from dubious persons who are enemies of the University. It wasn’t signed by me.
For avoidance of doubt, the University remains closed until further notice”
The statement added that “All students will be formally informed of the date of resumption anytime the decision to that effect is taken by the University Management.”
