The management of Veritas University of Nigeria Abuja, has decided to introduce online learning following concerns raised by parents over the security of students. The university located in the Bwari axis, outskirts of the Nigerian capital is owned by the Catholic Church.
Recall that the school had earlier postponed resumption indefinitely because of insecurity.
According to reports, a parent, who did not want her name in print, revealed that the school authority had already issued a circular announcing the decision to offer online learning. The circular signed by the university’s Registrar, Dr. Stella Chizoba, asked parents to decide whether their children would resume physically or virtually.
“In recognition of this fact, therefore, and after due consultations, Veritas University Management has decided that the rest of the second semester of the 2021 session will be blended. That implies that lectures will be held both online and physically within the campus. “In consequence, therefore, students and their parents/sponsors are free to decide whether to resume physically onsite in the university or to continue their lectures online.”
