Sunday, 24 September 2017


The Vice Chancellor who mentioned this while given a speech during the Holy Mass at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Chaplaincy (STACC), Federal University of Technology, Owerri on Sunday, September 24th 2017 said that due to the Nationwide ASUU strike that was just called off, there is a tendency that the "CONVOCATION MAY NOT HOLD".

Let us recall that the strike lasted approximately 5 weeks, and again, FUTO second semester examination was scheduled to start on the 15th of October, 2017. Doing the calculations involved, adding the 'lost 5 weeks' to the earlier scheduled examination date, will end up taking us to an exam date sometime in ending of November or first week of December.

The earlier approved date for the convocation by the Federal Government was December 2nd and bearing in mind that results are supposed to be ready before the convocation, there is a low probability that the convocation 'may' not hold. Let's all keep our fingers crossed.

He went ahead to advice students of the institution to debunk any rumor that the official modified semester calendar is out as the senate is yet to meet. The ASUU withdrawal from work affected all academic activities including "The Senate", so any rumor on social media should be neglected. The official calendar will be out as soon as the senate meets during the week.

Students are advised to resume school as lectures starts immediately as earlier announced on the Vice Chancellors twitter handle. They are also advised to always check for information concerning the school on the school website, the official twitter handle of the Vice Chancellor.
