Obafemi Awolowo University has obeyed the Federal Government directive to pack up the varsity amidst Corona Virus fear.
This was obtained via a text sent by the Chief Security Officer of the varsity instructing all students to go away the hostels and head back to their respective homes.
Recall that OAU had said before FG’s directive that it wont shut down but that it would review the directive position from time to time.
All students are expected to leave the School today while the school had promised to allow Buses into it to avoid a rush.
This was announced via a tweet from @OAUSecurityDep;
See tweets below:
OAU is declared closed, students are expected to start going to their respective homes this morning.
To avoid stampeding the buses will be coming to campus as early as 0500hr.
Thank you https://t.co/n3kwcCsMWa
