Eid-el-Kabir: AAUA Declares Salah Holiday, Reschedules Exams

The management of Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) has on Friday July 16, 2021 released a circular to students and staffs of the university on how it intends to handle exams that would be affected by the Ed-el-Kabir holiday.

Recall that the Federal government through the Minister of Interior  Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola had on Thursday 15th 2021 announced that there would be public holiday on the 20th and 21st of July to celebrate the Muslim Festival.

In a circular by the registrar of the institution, Mr Gbenga Arajulu, the University will be closed down for official duties on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st July, 2021 except those on essential duties as directed by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Olugbenga Ige.

The circular also directed all members of staff and students to resume official activities on Thursday, July 22, 2021.

The Vice Chancellor has also directed that the examinations affected by the two-day public holidays be rescheduled for 2nd and 3rd August, 2021. However, this shift does not affect the Faculty of Agriculture and Faculty of Law, as the Sub-Deans of the two Faculties will effect the shift as appropriate.

The circular by the school authority comes as a relief for the students as there has been different speculations on how the exams affected would be handled.

Below is the circular, which contains the update:

CIRCULAR TO ALL  STAFF AND STUDENTS

PUBLIC HOLIDAYS  AND RESCHEDULING OF EXAMINATIONS  AFFECTED BY PUBLIC HOLIDAYS

This is to inform all members of staff and students of the University that the Federal Government has declared Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st July, 2021 as public holidays to celebrate Ed-el-Kabir.

IGE, has therefore directed that the University be closed down for official duties on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st July, 2021 except those on essential duties.
