Examination: KASU to disqualify students with less than 75% attendance
NNN: The Kaduna State University said on Monday it would disqualify students with less than 75 per cent attendance from writing its second semester examination.
The varsity’s management gave the warning in a statement by the university’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Adamu Bargo, made available to newsmen in Kaduna.
The varsity’s management had on April 26, announced that academic activities would resume on May 9 for the continuation of the Second Semester 20202021 academic session.
Responding, KASU branch of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), had countered the statement, saying academic activities would not resume as it had not pulled out of the on-going strike by the parent union.
Following the negligible number of students that resumed due to the lingering strike by ASUU, the management in its statement, notified students of the continuation of lectures.
“Any student that does not meet up with the 75 per cent attendance will automatically be disqualified for the 2nd Semester examinations,” the management said.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that in 2020, ASUU went on a nine-month strike, which was the longest since 1999.
On Feb. 14, about two years later, it went on a four-week warning strike to press its demands.
ASUU extended the strike by eight weeks, saying it was giving the government more time to attend to its demands.
Upon the expiration of the eight weeks, it announced an additional 12-week roll-over with effect from May 9, to end in August.
The union had explained that the strike was in the best interest of the university system and no amount of threat would intimidate the branch to withdraw from the current struggle. (
