The fear of attacks by bandits is the beginning of wisdom for the management of Veritas University in Abuja which has decided to introduce online learning.
The university located in Bwari axis of Abuja and which is owned by the Catholic Church had to offer the online learning option to students as parents were raising fears over their safety on campus.
The university issued a circular which partly read: “In recognition of this fact, therefore, and after due consultations, Veritas University Management has decided that the rest of the second semester of the 2021 session will be blended. That implies that lectures will be held both online and physically within the campus.
“In consequence, therefore, students and their parents/sponsors are free to decide whether to resume physically onsite in the university or to continue their lectures online.”
