THE leadership of Adekunle Ajasin University,Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), Ondo State has insisted on the November 24 resumption date for 2019/2020 academic session.

 

The announcement is against the students’ wish that the academic calendar be extended since the ongoing 2018/2019 academic session would end soon.

 

”The academic calendar sent to the university community has been approved by the Senate of the university, and the entire students populace are hereby urged to affirm to it,” he said.

 

Among the agitators are students of the Faculty of Education, who are planning for teaching practice (TP) in the next session. They claimed that the two-week break is not enough to prepare for the exercise.

 

However, in an interview with CAMPUSLIFE, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academics), Prof Francis Gbore, said the institution’s leadership would not rescind its decision. He added that students who flout the directive would be punished.

 

Gbore told CAMPUSLIFE that the calendar for the new date was proposed to the Senate of the university, which gave it its nod. He said there would be adherence to the resumption date and academic calendar.

 

He said: “The academic calendar sent to the university community has been approved by the Senate of the university, and the entire students populace are hereby urged to affirm to it.”

 

Gbore has, however, reiterated that the resumption date remains November 24. He buttressed further that students who do not adhere to it were on their own.

 

“ The academic calendar sent to the university community has been approved by the Senate of the university, and the entire students populace are hereby urged to affirm to it, ”
