Greenfield University commences second semester lectures online
Staff and students of Greenfield University Kaduna were forced to move online in August to continue with the academic session of the university which was abruptly disrupted following the news of the mandatory lockdown due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Speaking to news men in an interview, the Pro Chancellor of the university Engr/Chief Simon Nwakacha said that the move was necessary to keep up with the academic calendar. More so, since there was a lot of uncertainty and a resumption date not forth coming it was necessary to go online to avoid losing valuable time.

The Pro Chancellor said “As you know we are faced with an unprecedented situation where academic activities have been disrupted across educational institutions worldwide and activities have gone online in a bid to make sure that people continue learning during the lockdown. This is a new direction for education and an interesting one. Though there are challenges but we believe we are capable of overcoming them. We shall employ all technological means to ensure that we keep the semester going. We advise everyone to obey the health warnings and instructions that have been put out to keep us all safe during this period. We need to make it through this period together. So I urge everyone to comply with the safety regulations that have been provided by the NCDC; wash your hands regularly, wear a face mask, avoid large gatherings, keep your 2 meters apart distance and most especially stay safe. We need to beat this virus and we can only do so together if we obey the rules.”
