The Niger Delta University have slated November 7th, 2022 as resumption date from the 8months long ASUU strike which started February 14th, 2022. ASUU had since October 14th, 2022 called off its protracted strike after successive court cases which favoured the Nigerian government, mandating ASUU to pull out of the strike to enable both parties continue negotiations.

However, the 2022 flooding which have been recorded as the highest in the last decade had overwhelmed major parts of the university, the host community and Bayelsa State as a whole, making resumption of academic activities difficult for the institution.
In a previous memo dated October 20th, 2022, the management held that it is observing the flood behaviour and the road situation to enable it make a decision on resumption.
In another subsequent memo signed by the SA VC, Mr. Emmanuel Amaegbe, on behalf of the Registrar, the university directed staff to commence the process of fumigation and preparation of the university community for resumption.
In the latest memo released late 3rd November, 2022, the Senate held that “while the universty management awaits government to fix the damaged portions of the road leading to the university, academic activities shall commence online with effect from Monday 7th, 2022.
The memo also states that all academic staff of the university shall be trained by the ICT centre of the university on the use of the application required to teach online; the training shall commence 21st to 24th November, 2022.
Meanwhile, matriculation for the 2021/2022 academic session have been slated to hold 3rd December, 2022.
The university management seizes the opportunity to direct all 100 level students who are yet to complete their online clearance to do so with effect from Monday, November 7th, 2022 as Faculty reps will be at Yenagoa Law Faculty campus to handle all physical clearance.
The university also directs all Deans of Faculties to forward names of fresh graduates who have paid school fees and completed their courses enrollment to the Senate for approval.
