Abuja University shut down

University of Abuja

Some students of the university protested about their examinations.

The University of Abuja has been ordered shut down by its authorities. The University was shut Monday morning following students’ unrest.

Reports from Gwagwalada, where the University is situated, said trouble started when some students of the Faculty of Engineering protested the inability of the school authority to bring out a time table for their exams; even when students in other faculties have started theirs.

A University source said there is a problem with Engineering courses with regards to accreditation as those who graduated from the faculty were yet to get their results.

“The authorities felt there is no point writing exams for courses that have no accreditation until the issue is resolved, but the students feel short changed by the management that is why they started protesting today,” the source said.

    Educational sectors are supposed to be the base for a well planned nation, but in our own case it is the bench-mark for failures. Why offering admission to students while the courses wanted were not yet accredited in the first instance? Failure upon failure!
