A student of Covenant University has raised an alarm over the institution failing to conduct COVID-19 tests as part of the process of reopening.
According to the student identified as Tayurn on Twitter, parents were lied to as the varsity is only doing pregnancy and drug tests instead of coronavirus tests.
She disclosed that all they did was take her urine and blood sample, pleading for help while revealing that she was scared.
Speaking further, the undergraduate claimed that she was told by one of the staff that should any of them become infected, Papa (Bishop Oyedepo) is praying.
Covenant University is not doing COVID-19 test for students! They lied to our parents. They are only doing pregnancy and drug test! I resumed today and all they did was take my urine and blood sample. @OGSGOfficial Please help! I am scared to my wits! Retweet when you see this.
One of the staff even said that if any of us is infected, that we should not worry that papa is praying. That we should forget COVID-19.
And to top it all, in the hostels, we are FOUR in a room! No difference from every other semester before COVID-19.”
