The Registrar and Secretary to Council of the institution, Dr Taiwo Ipaye, disclosed this on Tuesday in Lagos that a new date for the screening would be announced later on the university’s website.

“However, this postponement does not affect the ongoing application for the post-UTME screening which closes officially on Sept. 15,’’ Ipaye said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the postponement follows the indefinite strike by the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of non-teaching staff of universities.

JAC comprises of members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), the Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) and NAAT.

Members of the various labour unions of universities were agitating the non-implementation of the agreement it entered into with the Federal Government in 2009.
