EKSU Holds Virtual Matriculation For Students
The Ekiti state University has held an Online matriculation for its newly admitted students for the 2019/20 session.
This follows the closure of tertiary institutions to contain the spread of coronavirus. Over 8,000 fresh students were matriculated after taking their studentship oath from their respective homes on Friday.
Speaking during the programme, the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Edward Olanipekun, said COVID-19 made the matriculation unique. He said that having succeeded in holding the matriculation online, the institution will also adopt e-learning. Mr Olanipekun explained that the school is planning a new 1000-seater capacity Computer-Based Test Centre when school resumes fully after the pandemic.
Osun state University also held a similar event in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
