KADUNA STATE UNIVERSITY SUSPENDS UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES
The Kaduna State University (KASU) has announced the suspension of all undergraduate academic activities till further notice.
This development was made known in a statement on Tuesday by the University’s Registrar, Samuel Manshop.
The Registrar, who did not disclose the reason for suspending the academic activities, however, noted that postgraduate programmes, college of medicine, faculty of pharmaceutical sciences and part-time programmes will continue with their activities.
The statement reads; “The management of KASU wishes to notify staff, students and the public that academic activities for undergraduate students have been suspended indefinitely.
“Postgraduate programmes, college of medicine, faculty of pharmaceutical sciences and part-time programmes are to continue with their activities.
“Staff is also expected to report to work as usual, while management will communicate further developments.’’
This is coming barely 24 hours after Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State dismissed 16 lecturers and 2 non-academic staff in the University for participating in a protest organised by the Nigeria Labour Congress(NLC) in May.
