Varsities in Rivers postpone examinations

The curfew imposed on Port Harcourt and its environs has compelled the Rivers State University and the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education to postpone their ongoing examinations.

No new date has been announced for the resumption of the examinations.

Rivers State Government imposed the curfew last week after hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests.

The Registrar/Secretary to the Senate of the Rivers University, Dr. Sydney Enyindah, said in a statement in Port Harcourt on Monday that the suspension of the examinations became necessary to allow candidates comply with government’s directives on the curfew and to ensure their safety.

“Following our earlier announcement postponing some examinations in the ongoing first semester examination, it has become necessary to postpone the remaining parts of the first semester examinations,” he said.

In another statement, Mrs. Hope Kue-Ikoro, registrar at the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, said the Senate had approved the postponement of the final year examinations earlier scheduled to hold between October 26 and November 2.

She added that a new date for the examinations would be announced soon.
