The management of Afe Babalola University (ABUAD) has announced the resumption of academic activities for the 2020/2021 academic session. This was contained in a statement by the Registrar of the institution.
The statement reads, “Warm greetings to our most esteemed parents, guardians and beloved ABUAD students.
Everything that has a beginning must have an end. We therefore give glory to God Almighty for His protection upon all of us since the closure of schools from Monday, 23rd March, 2020.
It is with joy that I bring to your notice the Ekiti State COVID-19 Task Force Committee’s approval for the physical re-opening of our Institution. In the letter dated 29th September, 2020, the Ekiti State COVID-19 Task Force Committee stated inter alia that our “University’s preparation is rated Excellent and is therefore duly approved to re-open after October 2, 2020, in line with the Governor’s earlier pronouncement.”

Kindly be reminded that no student shall be granted access into the University without fulfilling their stipulated financial obligation to the University.
However, while you were all safely staying with your parents, the Management of your University was working round the clock to make sure that you return to a safe and secured campus devoid of any apprehension or fear of being infected by the pandemic or any other epidemic, for that matter.
As we have been informing you through TV advertisements and our website, ABUAD is fully equipped and prepared for your resumption. All we need is your full cooperation to adhere to the COVID-19 Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) protocols and follow all the University rules and regulations upon resumption.
We seize this opportunity to thank all our Parents and Guardians for their unalloyed belief in our Founder/Chancellor, Aare Afe Babalola, SAN, and by extension, in our Institution, the Afe Babalola University. Our prayers are that you will never lack in providing for your children and wards, and may you all reap the fruits of your labour over them. Your labour over them shall not be in vain.
May the Almighty God keep all of us safe and bless our new academic session with abundant success and joint achievements.
Welcome to 2020/2021 Academic Session!
