The Management of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), had on Tuesday debunked claims concerning the viral rumour that the institution would be resuming academic activities October 10.

It was seen in a report which has the FUOYE logo, stated that the university management had announced and slated 10th of October as resumption date adding that on the said date, both fresh and returning students of the university would resume as registration follows

In response to the news, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Abayomi Fasina, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media Matters, Mr Wole Balogun, described it as false.

“Members of the public and particularly our teeming students are enjoined to ignore the fake news currently going viral on social media that the institution is resuming academic activities on October 10, 2022.“This is false and the handiwork of some idle hands who are mischievously out to misinform unsuspecting members of the public.“FUOYE has not announced any date for the resumption of academic activities; so any news claiming to be such is fake and should be so dismissed by the general public. If and when the coast is clear for the resumption of academic activities on our twin campuses in Oye-Ekiti and Ikole-Ekiti, respectively, the institution will convey the message to our students via the appropriate and official means,” he said.
