Life has finally returned to Obafemi Awolowo University campus after two months of closure by its Management. The Halls of Residence visited by our correspondents today showed the rate of students influx into the campus remains low since the past 48 hours which is very unusual whenever resumption is announced. The reason for this may not be unconnected to the lack of Power and Water supplies in the Halls of Residence before now.
Power was restored early this morning in the Halls at exactly 10:43am while Water supply was restored in Fajuyi Hall specifically some minutes before the Power restoration. However, before now, the academic area of the university community was not part of the black out experienced.
The University Management has earlier announced the 24th of August as the set date for resumption of academic activities.
