As the persistent strike launched by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) continues, Bayero University, Kano has ordered students residing on campus to vacate the premises with immediate effect.

In addition, the university authority has also suspended on-campus student jobs, a recently launched entrepreneurship program until further notice.
