The Vice-Chancellor of Kaduna State University (KASU), Professor Abdullahi Ashafa, on Friday, July 8 has revealed that the university will reopen on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, for the continuation of academic activities
Ashafa stated that the decision is to enable its final year students to write their examinations and graduate, while he appealed to members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to be understanding for the sake of students.
He said that the state government has decided to provide foreign scholarships to students with outstanding Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), and upon graduation, they would be sent abroad for their master’s degrees to two African universities where the Kaduna State Scholarship and Loans Board had already signed a Memorandum of Understanding with.
The vice-chancellor further revealed that the admission processes into the foreign schools would be closed in September and KASU students have not written their second-semester examination because of the prolonged industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Consequently, the school management, after a critical meeting, resolved to reopen on July 13, with the second-semester examination scheduled to commence on July 25.
