According to an official press statement signed by the acting Registrar of the university, Rosemary Igboekwe, the ceremony will be used to administer the traditional oath of matriculation on a total number of 306 newly admitted students of the 2020/2021 batch.
Part of the statement reads thus,” Sequel to successful conclusion of the statutory comprehensive orientation programme for all new intakes in the 2020/2021 academic session, management is pleased to announce the convening of the 9th matriculation ceremony of the university, to administer the traditional oath of induction on a total of 306 fresh students, on Saturday 13 February 2021”.
In compliance with COVID-19 safety measures however, the statement enjoins all attendees to strictly adhere to all existing preventive protocols including, wearing of facemasks, social distancing, constant washing of hands and use of hand sanitizers, warning that defaulters will be denied access to the event.
The release concludes by stating that the ceremony will be limited to students only, and thereby encourages the public, especially relations of the matriculating students to follow the event online via live streaming on all social media platforms.
