UNILORIN VC vows not to stop academic activities for elections

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) Professor Wahab Egbewole has said that the institution will not shut down its academic activities during the forthcoming general elections.

The VC, however, clarified that students and staff would not be disenfranchised as the university had designed a programme “where students can attend virtual classes and vote wherever they are.”

 “We won’t suspend our lecturing for voting, Unilorin is digitised,” he added.

The VC also said the management of the university had designed the school’s academic programmes to ensure that all lost academic calendars to the 8 months strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities are recovered latest by October while a new academic session begins in August 2023.

Egbewole made this known while fielding questions from journalists during his maiden media parley on Wednesday.
