Bayero University Kano, BUK, has directed all students residing in its two campuses of the institution to vacate hostels and the entire university premises on or before March 20.
The university also suspended its on-campus job scheme earlier initiated until the resumption of full academic activities.
A statement issued by the university’s Information and Publication Secretary, Bala Abdullahi, on behalf of the University Registrar, noted that the action by the management followed the extension of the ongoing warning strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of the University, ASUU, for another two months.
“The management would from the said date, suspend the provision of all municipal services to the hostels,” the statement added.
The statement further stated that the steps were adopted to “forestall any unforeseen act of criminality as well as the attendant consequences.”
The Management of the University of Ibadan (UI), had on Thursday, shut down the institution indefinitely, thereby ordering all the students to vacate their hostels within the institution with immediate effect.
