The Federal University Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) has announced that it would be holding its matriculation ceremony for new students for the 2019/2020 academic session.
This event billed for 28th August, 2020 will be held virtually.
The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Kayode Soremekun while addressing journalists on Tuesday dismissed concerns that the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) would affect that.
He said that he is not answerable to ASUU and, as such, has the right to run the university.
Soremekun added that the matriculation ceremony should have held earlier but for the COVID-19 pandemic that further led to the total closure of schools.
According to him, about 6,000 students had been admitted for the 2019/2020 academic session across various disciplines.
On the modalities of the event, he said, “It will be virtual in the sense that we will put all the students on alert and in order to avoid the crowd crush, only the principal officers, Dean of Students Affairs and the Vice-Chancellor will be there.”For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
