UniPort to reopen soon – Spokesman

The Senate of the University of Port Harcourt may reopen the institution soon if the school environment is conducive for learning, an official has said.

The Deputy Registrar (Information) of the university, Williams Wodi, said this in an interview with
the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt on Friday.
He said the Senate, which met recently, only deliberated on results and administrative matters.

“The Senate of the university will meet at the appropriate time and when they meet, if the school environment is conducive, they will fix a resumption date.

“But for now, the last meeting they held considered results only – which means that they did not fix a resumption date based on the variable information available to them.

“The Senate meets almost every month, and also meet in emergency session and extra ordinary session if there is any reason for such meeting.

“So next time they meet, if they feel it is appropriate and the time is right, they will direct us to announce the resumption of the university,” he said.

The school was closed on April 11, after students protested “no tuition no examination” policy, which compelled defaulting students to repeat a whole academic session.

The violent protest led to the death of a final year student, Peter Ofurum, who was of the Faculty of Management Sciences.

The protesting students destroyed properties. (NAN)
