The management of Kaduna State University (KASU), on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, shut down the institution for students’ protests over tuition fee increment.
Recall that the state government, a few weeks ago, hiked the Kaduna State University students’ tuition fees which the students rejected vehemently.
The management announced the shutdown through a statement issued by the university’s Registrar, Samuel S. Manshop, saying activities in the institution have been closed indefinitely.
According to the management, Postgraduate programmes, College of Medicine, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Part-Time programmes are to continue with their activities.
The statement read, “The Management of Kaduna State University wishes to notify staff, students and the general public that academic activities for undergraduate students have been suspended indefinitely.
“Postgraduate programmes, College of Medicine, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Part-Time programmes are to continue with their activities,” he said.
The statement further read that staff are also expected to report to work as usual as the management would communicate any development to them soon.
It was gathered that the closure of the institution followed weeks of protests by the students.
