The University of Jos postponed its ongoing first semester examinations following the night fire incident that destroyed the library complex and some faculties on Saturday.
Social Sciences and Management Sciences were among the faculties destroyed by the fire.
The Registrar, Mr Monday Danjem, said in a statement in Jos on Sunday that the decision was taken “pending an emergency Senate meeting scheduled for Monday, Oct. 10.”
The statement however, urged students and members of the university community to remain calm and go about their normal businesses, noting that the situation had been brought under control.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quotes the university’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Sebastine Maimako, as saying that the fire destroyed examination scripts, books and crucial materials.
