“That all the Examinations scheduled for 11:30 – 2:30 and 3:00 – 6:00 pm will hold as scheduled.”

The statement added that the University had approved the release of its buses to be stationed at strategic routes in order to ease the transportation of students to and from the University.

While noting that all the remaining examinations remain as scheduled, the university assured that all suspended examinations would be conducted at a time and date to be specified later.

Newsmen had earlier reported that thousands of people were stranded in Kano, with many trekking to various places as a result of the Tricycle riders strike.
