“The Vice-Chancellor, on behalf of the Senate, has approved closure of the First Technical University (Tech-U), Ibadan, with effect from Monday, 23 March, 2020 till after the Easter break in April, 2020.

“The closure is in compliance with the directive of the Oyo State Government that all private and public schools in the state should shut down to prevent, curtail, control and contain the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in Nigeria in general and Oyo State in particular.

“All students are, therefore, expected to vacate the halls of residence latest by the evening of Monday, 23 March, 2020. However, the University, being at the edge of technology, will deploy her Learning Management System to continue to deliver lectures and assignments online to students even while they are off campus.

“Meanwhile, both staff and students of the First Technical University are hereby enjoined to adhere strictly to social distancing and other preventive, precautionary and safety measures to curtail further spread of the virus.”
