The Taraba State Government has approved the reopening of the State-owned university and other tertiary institutions before the end of October.
But the directive does not cover the College of Agriculture, Jalingo; School of Health Technology, Takum and the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Jalingo.
The State’s Commissioner for Information and Re-orientation, Danjuma Adamu, who disclosed this in Jalingo said the actual date for the resumption will be determined after consultation with key players.
Tertiary institutions were closed down in Taraba State due to COVID-19 pandemic.
But the State university was not in full operation before its closure as result of an ASUU strike.
The State Government has fixed October for the resumption of all tertiary institutions including State university and other institutions under the supervision of Ministry of Tertiary Education.
The management of the State university and polytechnic say measures have been put in place in line with COVID-19 protocols in preparation for the students’ resumption.
The ASUU strike may likely affect the resumption of the State university and have a negative impact on the academic calendar of the institution.
