This decision, as outlined in a statement signed by the university’s Acting Registrar, Amina Abdullahi Umar, is a response to the nationwide strike initiated by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC).
The University Management has instructed all students to remain calm and await further instructions. The statement emphasized that the ongoing examinations are midway, and once the strike concludes, the examinations will resume.
