Application For NNPC/SNEPCO Scholarship 2020 Is Now Out

 A lot of students have been anticipating for schools to resume around September 7 most especially due to the video that recently made waves online on school resumption - even though it has been confirmed by certain sources that the VIDEO was fake. 

  What fuels this projection was the additional circular posted by FUTA on renovation of some buildings and this made a lot of students think it's likely to be on that date. 

  However this projection cannot be ascertained yet as there are a lot of things the institution have to put in place (in order to avoid academic activities clashing with each other) thus making September 7 almost impossible to resume... 

 KINDLY NOTE THAT the  Resumption DATE Lies with the Federal Government and the School Authority..
    And If students are to resume, we will be notified by the appropriate authority in due time through the appropriate channel.. Till then, let's keep our hands fold πŸ‘Œ
