COVID-19: Nwafor Orizu COE may run without holidays on resumption – Provost

Items donated by the college

Ifeyinwa Osegbo, Provost of Nwafor Orizu College of Education, Nsugbe (NOCEN) in Anambra, has said that the institution may run without semester breaks when it resumed after COVID-19 lockdown.

Osegbo said this on Thursday in Akwa when she led a team of management of the institution to donate hygiene items to Anambra government.

She reiterated that the outbreak of coronavirus had brought setback to education system, not only in Nigeria, but to global education community.

The provost, who recalled that the institution was writing its examination when it was shutdown, said the institution would double its workload and do without holidays.

“The last few weeks we have witnessed the lockdown of activities in the country, our students are at home, although we go to school to maintain skeletal services but academic activity is down.

“It hasn’t been easy, we were actually writing examination when the lockdown started but we have to key into it to save lives.

“You know it is a global problem, whenever we reopen, we will tackle studies with every sense of responsibility.

“We will double our efforts and I don’t think we will have holidays so that we can recover what we have lost,” she said.

Osegbo said the items being donated to the government included 20 cartons of hand sanitisers and 10 cartons of bar soap.

Prof. Solo Chukwulobelu, Secretary to Anambra Government, who received the donation, thanked the provost and her team for the gesture. (NAN)
