The Senate of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma has directed the resumption of full academic activities in the university with immediate effect.
The Senate, in an emergency meeting on Friday, reviewed its earlier directive suspending academic activities, a directive which was occasioned by protests over purported increase in tuition fees leading to the locking of the campus gate by the students.
The suspension of academic activities was a preemptive measure by the senate to avoid a breakdown of law and order.
A statement issued by the university’s acting Registrar, Ambrose E. Odiase, enjoined the students to be law-abiding upon their return to the campus
The statement added, “As part of its decision at the emergency meeting, the Senate considered and approved a revised academic calendar for the 2022/2023 academic session.
“The Senate therefore directs that students return to the halls of residence on Sunday 1st October, 2023, while lectures are scheduled to commence on Tuesday, 3rd of October, 2023.”
It would be recalled that students of the university protested an alleged increase in school fees for returning students for about four days.
The PUNCH earlier reported on September 5, 2023 that the management of the university announced the indefinite suspension of all academic activities in the institution with immediate effect.
