UNILAG postpones resumption to March 21


The University of Lagos has announced that it will now resume lectures on Tuesday, March 21, 2023.

The Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Folasade Ogunsola, approved the postponement of academic activities, according to a statement released by the institution, adding that all other university activities, including inaugural lectures and meetings (apart from teaching), should go as planned.

It stated that the move of the gubernatorial and state House of Assembly elections from Saturday, March 11, 2023, to Saturday, March 18, 2023, was the reason for the postponement of the resumption to Tuesday, March 21, 2023.

It read, “It would be recalled that the federal government had directed that students of higher institutions across the country should vacate their schools ahead of the 2023 general elections. As a result, the University Senate had approved the suspension of academic activities (teaching) from Tuesday, February 21, 2023, to Tuesday, March 14, 2023.

“Once again, members of the university community are implored to remain safe and security conscious as well as orderly, civil and responsible in utterances and engagements, online and offline.

“Further updates would be provided as the need arises in the coming days.”
