COVID-19, ASUU strike: BUK Cancels 2019/2020 Academic Session

As students of Bayero University Kano (BUK) resume for their various academic programmes January 18, they will have to repeat a whole academic session.

This follows the cancellation of the 2019/2020 academic session by the Senate of the institution due to what it described as the disruption of the academic calendar by the raging COVID-19 and the nine-month strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The cancellation announcement is contained in a memo signed by Fatima Binta Mohammed, the institution’s registrar.

The memo announced January 18, 2021 for the resumption of all academic activities.

It explained that first semester for undergraduates would commence on January 18, 2021 while second semester commences May 3, 2021.

January 18, according to the memo, also marks the commencement of the first semester for postgraduate students, who would have their second semester commencing on June 1, 2021.

The memo conveyed the Senate’s granting of ‘grace’ to postgraduate students who are yet to register for the session to do so before the commencement of the session.
