Lectures Resume at FUL as Pioneer Medical Students Commence Registration


Today, academic activities have resumed at both campuses of the Federal University Lokoja (FUL) as students were seen in their various classes with great excitement receiving lectures while others gathered in clusters, bonding together in reunion with their friends and course mates whose company they had so much missed as a result of the protracted nationwide strike. 

In fact, the euphoria that characterizes the atmosphere of every citadel of learning upon resumption from any break was crystal clear as one can see the great enthusiasm boldly written on the faces of our dear students who were happy to be back on campus.

It was indeed a beehive of activities at the College of Health Sciences, Adankolo Campus and the University's Permanent Site, Felele as both campuses have once again become vibrant and full of life. Also, the buzzing noise from all corners of the core academic areas which is typical of everyday experience on university campuses has fully returned.  

Some of the students who could not hide their excitement posed to take pictures on our beautiful and environmental-friendly campuses while expressing satisfaction over Management’s preparedness to receive them.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Professor M.S. Audu was on the ground to receive the returning students, including the Batch "B" 100-level students as well as the pioneer medical students. 

The DVC was practically helping and guiding the students through their registration processes that would enable them settle down quickly to meet up with lectures and rigorous academic work in the current accelerated session. He was there to ensure a hitch-free and seamless registration exercise, while making sure that every challenge capable of disrupting the smooth process was nipped in the bud.

Similarly, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) Professor Abdulahi Emmanuel Bala who spoke earlier while addressing the students on the negative impact of the current Lokoja flood on some students who have their rented apartments totally submerged, noted that the decision taken by FUL Management and Senate, in their wisdom, to commence lectures one week after the date of official resumption from the national strike was to enable the students settle accommodation-related challenges before lectures begin. He empathized with the students affected by the flood which has ravaged many communities across Kogi State and Nigeria.

Recall that on Monday, 17th October, 2022 following the suspension of the strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the Senate of Federal University Lokoja at an Emergency Meeting chaired by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olayemi Akinwumi, considered and approved a revised Academic Calendar for the commencement of lectures on Monday, 24th October, 2022 (today).
