Academic activities resume at UNIPORT


Academic activities have resumed fully today at the University of Port Harcourt after more than two months closure of the institution.

The institution was shut down on the 11th of April after one student was killed during the students protest over the institutions attempt to stop fees indebted students from writing their examinations.

Some students were seen today writing their first semester examinations while others were receiving lectures.

The students however called on the school authority to put adequate security in place following recent cult killings in Aluu communities.

In the meantime, the authorities of the University of Port Harcourt have assured the returning students that adequate security has been put in place to secure lives and property.

Deputy Registrar Information and Public Relation of UNIPORT DR. WILLIAMS WODI advised the students to be more security conscious.

WILLIAMS WODI warned that the school will not tolerate any indiscipline act from the students.

However, reports say the school authority has mandated the students to pay N5000 levy for the replacement of properties that were damaged during the protest on April 11, 2016.
