Commercial activities have resumed at the University of Benin, Ugbowo campus, after about a year of non-academic activities due to strike action and COVID-19 pandemic-induced closure.
The News Agency of Nigeria correspondent, who monitored activities in various locations at the campus on Tuesday, reports that restaurants, salons, printing and photocopy shops were opened for business.
NAN also observed that the internal and external school shuttle services were busy conveying students within and outside the school.
Students were also spotted printing and photocopying lecture materials at the different computer shops located inside the school premises.
Some of the business operators who spoke with NAN in separate interviews expressed their excitement over the school resumption.
Speaking to NAN, Doris Omoba, a computer operator whose business center is in the school premises said she opened her shop for business due to high demand for printing and photocopying work from returning students.
