The Nation, Nigeria

The University of Lagos is to re-open for academic work on Monday, May2, 25 days after its students were sent home for protesting.

Each returning student will, however, meet conditions stipulated by the institution’s authorities.

These, according to the university’s spokesman, Mr. Toyin Adebule include completion of   the undertaking form.

Parents and guardians are also to complete an indemnity form and the completed undertaking form notarised.

Both documents will be submitted at the various departments and a clearance obtained while all students accommodated in the halls of residence are to obtain clearance from the departmental officer.

The clearance must be presented at the halls of residence to gain access into the rooms from the day of re-opening.

The clearance will also be required to gain access into examination halls on May 9 when examinations will commence.

The forms can be downloaded from the university website and must be submitted on or before May 2.

“Examination will commence from May 9. Consequently, students are expected to generate their examination dockets and ensure they are duly endorsed by their course advisers between Monday, April 25 and Monday, May 2,” Adedule said and warned that “ no student will be readmitted without completing the above process.”

The university’s senate ordered the institution shut on April 7 following days of students’ protest on campus.

The students were protesting poor electricity and water supply on the campus and accused the management of insensitivity to their plight.
