The statement directed students who had outstanding examinations for the 2012/2013 session to report to their respective faculties and departments in Nsukka and Enugu campuses.
The ESUT Registrar, Chris Igbokwe, also advised students and academic and non- academic staff to report to the institution on December 2.
According to the statement, students were advised to return to their campuses at Agbani and Enugu campuses as the second semester examination would commence on Monday, December 9.
The Federal Government had on Thursday, directed all federal universities to resume work on or before December 4.
The statement, issued by the Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, directed the striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, to resume work or consider themselves sacked.
