The Bells University of Technology, Ota, Ogun state says the institution resumed on Monday, Oct.5 for the completion of the 2019/2020 Session after the long break occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prof. Jeremiah Ojediran, Vice-Chancellor of the university, disclosed this in a statement signed by Mr Akeem Adeyemi, the institution’s Public Relation Officer (PRO) and made available to newsmen on Wednesday.
Ojediran said that the arrival and screening of students into the campus and halls of residence commenced on Sunday, with staff performing the screening starting from the University gate.
“Only students were allowed into the gate as parents, cars and cabs were directed to drop the students in front of the gate for them to enter through the screening cordon.
“The students proceeded to the reception area where full screening and sanitization took place.
“All students’ belongings along with the students were sanitized at this receiving point, nose masks and personal sanitizers (produced in the university) were distributed to each and every student resuming,” he said.
Ojediran said that the institution had provided buses that would pick and drop the students to their respective halls of residence where social distancing were observed to arrange them in their rooms.
He further said that hostel and others buildings were thoroughly fumigated and sanitized prior to the resumption.
The vice-chancellor commended the staff for their dedication and thoroughness in the screening exercise.
While welcoming students back to the campus, he prayed that no student or staff will suffer any health issues as academic work begins in earnest.
