Students Task on Intensive reading

Okechukwu Onuegbu

Director, SANDWICH Programme of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Prof. Godwin Umeh-Asiegbu, has underscored the significance of intensive study, urging students to intensify efforts on their academic endeavours rather than reading for examinations.
Prof. Umeh-Asiegbu who gave the advice in an interactive forum with sandwich students recently, explained that high level of preparedness is tantamount to academic prowess, even as he charged them to wisely request for and intensively study each of their course materials, assignments among others, saying they should disregard all form of distractions and idleness to that effect.
Expressing remorse over the disruption of their academic session by the recent ASUU’s industrial action, the Professor assured the students that the tuition fees they paid before the strike commenced remains intact and none would be tasked for again till ending of their semester, and also encouraged them to stay within the university community so as study harder but they will have full access to the hostels and more lecture halls while the regular students vacate.
Orient Daily recalled that sandwich students of NAU were yet to resume their first semester’s lecture while ASUU embarked on a national wide strike that lasted for almost six months. As a result, they are yet to complete the former semester because their colleagues in regular programmes have not vacate.  
Also, he noted that those in level 100 before the strike are to sit for lectures and exams along with the new-intakes (newly admitted 100 level students of sandwich programme) while others maintain their status quo.
