“Our online platforms for teaching and learning in the University were very effective, coupled with the fact that the institution parades the best brains in academics with the University Management through the Vice Chancellor doing its best to motivate the workers through regular salary payment, despite the downturn of the world economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As  we talk to you now, we have just conducted our mid-semester quiz online and we are ready to start our exams online as soon as the time comes but within this week, every lecturer has conducted online quiz for their students.

“So, we have a very effective online teaching and learning platform for our students. That schools are closed and  that students are not seated in their class rooms does not in anyway mean they are loosing anything.

“That is why the Vice Chancellor, Prof. I. U. Kalu has continued to say that the Students of Evangel University will graduate on record time because we  are utilizing our time judiciously.” he stated.

The Vice Chancellor further disclosed that the school management has no intention  of keeping students beyond their expected period of graduation.

 The VC called on parents to pay their children school fees, even as online teaching and learning were still in process, pending reopening of schools for normal physical activities.

“We have not been affected by the lockdown arising from the Coronavirus pandemic; we are  effectively online and we want to use this opportunity to call on the parents of Students of the University to pay their school fees because they are having their lectures everyday in the comfort of their rooms.

“The Management of this University has been able to work hard to ensure that there is constant salary for the Staff of the University; even during the period of lockdown, every staff of the University is receiving his or her full salary as at when due. 

“So, we thank the VC because of his magnanimity, his foresight in trying to pilot the affairs of the University to the point that the Staff of the University are not hungry.”

On the cut off mark for admission into Evangel University, Dr. Nwali said  the management after her meeting released the cut off mark in line with her policy and guideline from national Universities Commission, NUC and other relevant bodies.

“For  Nursing Science Department is 180, then 160 for all the other departments. So, the public should take advantage of the nearness of Evangel University here in Ebonyi State; the serene environment and the effective online teaching and learning  that are very functional in Evangel University.
