LANDMARK REMAINS COMMITTED TO MAINTAINING A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT

The Registrar, Landmark University, Miss Fola Oyinloye has reiterated the institution’s commitment to maintaining healthy and safe academic environment for Faculty, Staff and Students. The Registrar made this submission on Wednesday, 14th October 2020, while on a supervisory visit to the entrance of the gate where the registration exercise is taking place. Miss Oyinloye, while going round each stand on supervision, commended the members of Staff on duty for their commitment to making the process seamless and fast.  

Speaking on the new registration arrangement, the Registrar says “Talking about the resumption exercise, what has changed really is the process. You know when things happen sometimes it’s a way to see how better we can do some other things. Prior to now, we attend to the students at the chapel where we take them through the process as the case may be but this time around, we are receiving them at the University entrance and this has enabled us record a lot of improvements”. 

In addition Miss Oyinloye states that “From the feedback received from our Students, Faculty and Staff and some of the parents, this is the most seamless we have had from inception because I have also been privileged to work at the Directorate of Student Affairs before now which means there is always a room for improvement, you can improve on the processes this way, we can keep striving at getting better”. 

Also commenting on the level of preparedness for academic activities, the Registrar asserts “Our Faculty are excited and well ready, very prepared, because we have communicated them, they are quite prepared to start academic activities. As the case may be, there will be two weeks of lecture, one week of revision and then go into examination proper which will last for two weeks. The lecture theaters and classrooms are set, and the timetable committee will ensure students are assigned in the class and lecture rooms in numbers, we will ensure there is enough space for social distancing”. 

Miss Oyinloye thereafter allays the fear of some parents on the safety of their children while on campus saying “Prior to resumption, school has put in place safety measures as rolled out by the medical center and the committee set up by the University, we will never endanger our family and our students because they are our children also and we all live on this campus.  But beyond this, Landmark is a Christian mission university and we know that the Labourers labour in vain, if God is not with them. With God we have divine covering and His safety and security is sure”. 

Meanwhile some parents have expressed their satisfaction over the ongoing registration processes, commending the management’s thoughtfulness on coming up with such safety protocols and standards to prevent the outbreak of diseases on campus. 

One of the parents, Mr. Ebikibina John Ogborodi, the Director Special Duties, National Examination Council (NECO), Niger State, stated that the registration protocol is impressive same as safety measures on ground, as the school has provided everything needed to make resumption easy and smooth before students’ arrival. He encouraged the school to maintain the safety measures already put in place. 

Another parent, Deacon Bayo Ayodele noted that with the present situation in the country, the arrangement of dropping the children at the school entrance is normal.  He commended the University for checking and confirming students’ luggage as well as conducting other necessary screening exercises.

So far, the ongoing registration exercise, which enters its third day, recorded a total number of five hundred and twenty five (525) Students cleared, making a grand total of one thousand one hundred and seventy two (1,172) Students cleared and resumed on campus. The exercise continues on Thursday and Friday with students in 200 and 100 levels respectively returning to campus.
