However, the development was greeted with reactions among the students particularly those staying in the school’s halls of residence stating that they can’t afford to start moving back their loads to off campus again due to their fast approaching examination.

Abiodun while reacting to the students yearnings in a chat with DAILY GIST reporter noted that the directive was for students’ safety on campus which was hinged on adherence to COVID-19 protocols.

He stressed that the management is preventing any form of congestion in hostels and any other students’ joints on campus. He noted that OAU is a public and federal government owned institution and therefore must comply with the guidelines released by the government on safe reopening.

Abiodun reiterated that the management is trying all its best to avoid a situation where the federal government will use OAU as a scape goat adding that, government officials in the education ministry could visit the school any time to monitor the compliance of students and staffs on COVID-19 guidelines.
