Bayero University Kano (BUK) has cancelled the 2019-2020 sessions for all Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs in the institution.
The Senate of the institution approved the cancelation of the 2019-2020 sessions on Monday, January 4th.
This was made known in a memo signed by the university registrar Fatima Binta-Mohammed, and released after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) suspended its nine-month old strike across public universities of the country.
It was gathered that before ASUU embarked on a strike in March 2020, BUK had already completed its mid-semester break for first semester of 2019/2020 academic session for undergraduates, while the postgraduate students had just resumed for the session.
New academic session for undergraduates will now begin on January 18th, 2021 (first semester), while the second semester will begin on May 3rd, 2021. For the Postgraduates, the senate slated January 18th as first semester, while the second semester will begin on June 1st.
Amnesty was also granted by the senate to Postgraduate students who did not register within the time frame. They are to do so before the new session begins.
