The air of uncertainty over the actual commencement of examinations in the Cross River University of Technology (CRUTECH) has thickened as the date proposed by the Vice Chancellor Professor Owan Enoh passed by yesterday without the exams holding.

CrossRiverWatch earlier reported that the last Academic Staff Union congress held on Wednesday failed to resolve whether the hunger strike be called off and examinations commencing or not after the state government paid two out of the four months arrears of salaries, an action which must have informed the Vice Chancellor’s decision to post a message round the institution announcing the commencement of examinations yesterday.

When CrossRiverWatch visited the Calabar campus of the institution, students could be seen in groups discussing with no academic activity going on. Calls placed to sources in the Obubra, Ogoja and Okuku campuses of the school also revealed that examinations did not hold until about 5 p.m.

Students are currently divided over the actual date for the commencement of examinations between today (Friday, September 4) and Monday (September 7, 2015).

No official statement has been issued on the fate of the examinations much to the dismay of some students.
