The curfew imposed on Port Harcourt and its environs has compelled the Rivers State University and the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education to postpone their on-going examinations
No new date has been announced for the resumption of the examinations.
The Rivers State government imposed the curfew last week after hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests.
Registrar/Secretary to the Senate of River State University, Dr Sydney Enyindah, said in a statement issued in Port Harcourt on Monday that the suspension of the examinations became necessary so as to allow candidates to comply with government’s directives on the curfew and to ensure their safety.
“Following our earlier announcement postponing some examinations in the on-going first-semester examination, it has become necessary to postpone all the remaining parts of the first semester examinations,” he stated.
In another statement, Mrs Hope Kue-Ikoro, Registrar at the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, said the Senate had approved the postponement of the final year examinations earlier scheduled to hold between 26th October and 2nd November.
She added that a new date for the examinations would be announced soon.
EduCeleb.com also reported that #EndSARS protests against police brutality, which degenerated into violence last week also force a few other state governments to close schools.
While both Ogun and Oyo state governments have reopened schools on Monday, the same cannot be said of Lagos where resumption is pended indefinitely.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
