The University Of Lagos Authorities Force Physical Exams On Us Without COVID-19 Measures
Aggrieved 300 level to 500 level students of the University of Lagos have once again cried out over the university’s management’s refusal to take responsibility for their safety during the coming physical examination amidst the raging scourge of COVID-19.
The students in a petition obtained by SaharaReporters stated that “this form puts a lot of COVID-19 possible burdens on the students” and efforts made by the students to seek clarifications from the management proved abortive.
“An indemnity form that absolves management of a lot of responsibilities was attached. This form puts a lot of COVID-19 possible burdens on the students. In addition, it has an ambiguous paragraph with regard to hostel fees. As student leaders, we have requested for clarity but got none.
“We only have a few days to act to get the form reversed. Even if exams would be physical, the school management ought to take responsibility for its students,” the petition partly reads.
