The University management has mandated that all staff, Predegree candidates and members of the university community who have been asked to resume August 19th are to strictly observe the Covid-19 protocols.
This was made known by management of the Niger Delta University at its meeting held on Monday August 17th, 2020 which approved the resumption of duty by all staff of the Niger Delta University with effect from Wednesday, August 19th 2020.
In addition, all Predegree candidates scheduled to write the JUPEB National Examinations in September, 2020 are also advised to resume classes on Wednesday, August 19, 2020.
Current State of Returning Students
Many students have been misled that this resumption also concerns fulltime students to resume 19th August. However, no section of the memo referred to full time students.
All other students, both undergraduate and postgraduate students are to wait for further directives from the university management.
Predegree and Post UTME Examination
Up till now, there haven’t been any memo from the university stating when both Predegree and Post UTME candidates will write their examinations. However, it is sure that all exams will hold as soon as fulltime students resume.

It is very possible that when full time students resume, they may be given few weeks for revision before exams starts. However, management has not set the ground breaking (released any info) for activities for the completion of the fading semester.
Recall the University was at the verge of completing the first semester of 2019/2020 academic session before the suspension of academic activities 20th of March, 2020 as a result of the pandemic which ravaged many parts of the world including Nigeria.
It is not clear if school will resume September 7th as being speculated online as no memo has been released by the University. But whatever it is, it is sure that if the speculated general resumption date does not work, the university management will surely inform members of the public before then.
