Amidst Virtual resumption of academic activities in most schools in the country due to the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
The management of Bayero University has turned to physical resumption of academic activities as students from all faculties are seen receiving lectures physically in the lectures halls
The Vice Chancellor is said to have told newsmen that from the school’s gate, no student, staff or visitor would be allowed into the University without wearing face mask and hand washing machines and sanitizers have been provided.
On the issue of social distancing, “we told the students to as a matter of priority give two meter gap with one another and the students must not sit in one place as done before,” said the Vice Chancellor.
He added that the University Management commissioned another luxurious bus for conveying students to and from the campuses with stringent measures. “We have told the drivers not to allow anybody inside without face mask and if any driver violates, we will sanction him immediately,” he added.
According to the Vice Chancellor, the biggest challenge the University faces is how to ensure social distancing in the hostels. He added that the management toured the hostel facilities and took measures to evict squatters brought by their friends secretly to occupy the rooms thereby congesting it.
