This was verified in a circular on Thursday.
The management of the university said that this was in a recommendation to control the spread of COVID-19.
It, nonetheless, noted that virtual classes would begin on January 11, 2021.
Part of the circular read, “Please note that as a result of the Federal Government’s directive in order to control the spread of the second wave of COVID-19, all schools including tertiary institutions are to remain closed until 18 January 2021
“The Board of Regents has, therefore, approved the postponement of resumption for all returning students. However, Virtual Lectures through our LMS will commence as initially scheduled on January 11, 2021.
“Please ensure your child completes the registration procedures. Also, endeavour to pay all necessary fees as this will be a condition for access to lecture modules. Please check your child/ward portal for details.”
