It has been widely circulated that the Senate of Bayero University, Kano, has extended its resumption time from October 4, 2021, to the first week of November. However, students were worried as nothing was mentioned concerning the actual time of closing registration. Nevertheless, today, The Daily Reality newspaper has seen and verified a Facebook post of the Dean, Student Affairs, Bayero University, Kano, Professor Shamsuddeen Umar. The Dean posted as follows:
“Dear BUK Students.
1. With [the] extension of the resumption time, the registration time has also been extended accordingly. So the registration portal will not close and even if it closes it will be opened again. So there is no cause for alarm.
2. The Vice-Chancellor has increased the number of students to benefit from the Indigent scholarship. The list will soon be pasted and this year close [to] 500 students will get #50,000 each to help them register and do other things.
3. The Vice-Chancellor has also directed for the employment of interested students, to do some work during their lecture-free time in the University and they will be receiving payment weekly to enable them [to] cater for themselves while studying.
I wish all of you success,
Prof. Shamsuddeen Umar
