Ogundipe made the appeal during an interview with Newsmen in Lagos.
According to him, in the face of the resurgence of Novel Coronavirus pandemic, all academic activities of the institution, including examinations, will be online.
Ogundipe said that the candidates would need the tablets not just for the purpose of the post-UTME test but also to facilitate other e-learning processes.
Ogundipe FURTHER DISCLOSED that the university had collapsed 2020/2021 academic session with 2021/2022 academic session.
