Students of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU) Bauchi are writing their second-semester examination, despite the nationwide strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

ASUU commenced the indefinite strike on Monday over poor funding of universities in the country.

‎‎According to NAN, ATBU students who began their examination last week continued under the supervision of their lecturers.

‎Aminu Ibrahim, a student of the department of microbiology of the university, said: “We are in our second week of exams, the exams will be concluded on the 19th of this month November.

“As a matter of fact, we don’t know ASUU is on strike because our exams are going on smoothly. We are only aware of the labour strike which was suspended.

‎”All the same we are begging them to allow us to finish our exams before joining the strike.”

Adamu Babayo, chairman, ASUU ATBU Bauchi chapter, said he would comment on the situation after a congress.

“We will be holding Congress any moment from now we will brief you after the Congress,” Babayo said.
