Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo has requested that its students who are resuming for the first semester of the 2020/2021 academic session should come with a sum of N25,000 for a COVID-19 test.
The students are also requested to resume with their personal safety kits which includes an infrared thermometer (for those who can afford it), a pack of disposable face masks or three reusable ones as well as hand sanitisers.
The institution is set to resume in two batches, with the first batch resuming next Monday while the others will resume on the 25th of October.
However, parents have laid their complains about the cost of meeting these demands in addition to increased fees considering the fact that the students would spend less time on campus due to the pandemic.
One of the parents said;
“We got a memo from them three days ago that COVID-19 test is compulsory at the gate. They said students should come with one pack of disposable face masks or three Ankara versions, one infrared thermometer and they must show them at the gate,”
