But the management of the university which is bent on having a stable academic calendar had said that the examination will begin on the 14th of January despite the fact that some students have not been receiving lectures for about three months.
ASUU, in an open letter to the students signed by its chairman, Adeola Egbedokun, warned that any examination conducted by the school will be null and void.
