The attention of the Management of the
University of Maiduguri has been drawn to
a story in one of the National Dailies to the
effect that the resumption date for students
of the Institution has been extended by
three (3) months and the cancellation of one
academic session thereby jeopardizing the
chance of students that applied for
admission into the University.
The Management will like to make it
categorically clear that while the cancellation
of one academic session was done due to
the security challenges in the state, it has in
no way affected other academic
programmes of the University.
Furthermore, there was never a time that
the resumption date for new and returning
students got extended as portrayed by
these dailies, and one wonders where and
how the story came about! For the
avoidance of doubt, the Senate of the
University at its meeting held on the 28th of
June 2012 approved Calendar of dates and
events for the 2012/2013 session.
According to the Calendar, registration for
first semester 2012/2013 session for all
students (including those who applied and
got selected for the 2012/2013 admissions
exercise) commences from 3rd September
2012 and ends on 22nd September 2012
while Lectures begin for all students on
24th September 2012.
The first semester examinations will
commence January 14th 2013 and end
February 9th 2013.
Lectures for the second semester begin
February 25th 2013 with examination
commencing on 17th of June and to end on
July 13th 2013.
In the light of the above, the Management
will like to seize this opportunity to appeal
to members of the press to always cross-
check and seek for clarifications where
necessary before going to Press.
