The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has faulted the recent semester examinations conducted by the management of Kaduna State University.
Management of Kaduna State University had a few weeks ago, conducted semester examinations for their students, asking lecturers to resume.
This came a few days after Governor Nasir El-Rufai during a live broadcast threatened to sack all the striking lecturers.
ASUU, while reacting to the conduct of the examination, asked KASU management to cancel all conducted examinations until the national body call off the strike
According to ASUU, the examination must be re-conducted after following due process.
In a statement signed by the Zonal Coordinator, ASUU-Kano Zone, Abdulkadir Muhammad, he noted that if the institution’s management fails to cancel the examination, the union will be left with no option but to write a petition to the National University Commission (NUC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission ( ICPC).
According to him, these theatrical exercises that the University management confused and referred to as examinations that are currently going on in KASU are characterised by non-coverage of course outlines, and incomplete lecture contact hours.
He said non-participation of lecturers who taught the courses in the setting of the examination questions and supervision, involvement of students in invigilation and non-moderation of questions papers, are clear violations of the laid down rules and regulations governing the conduct of examinations.
“Therefore, ASUU demands that all the so-called- examinations so far conducted be discarded to maintain and respect the scared system of evaluation in the university,” he said.
