The students of University of Abuja this afternoon protested against the suspension of four courses run by the institution by halting traffic flow on the Umaru Musa Yar'adua expressway in Abuja.

The Federal Government had on Tuesday suspended some courses in the university. These courses include Medicine, Veterinary medicine, Engineering and Agriculture.

The departments offering these courses have failed to get accredited by the National Universities Commission and many students have therefore been unable to graduate from them for years.


The protesting students obstructed traffic on the expressway outside the permanent site from the early hours of today. The expressway is one of the major entry routes into Abuja and also leads also the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport.

Traffic to and from Abuja on that axis was halted for hours and many motorists had had to turn back and seek alternative routes into the city.

That's awful, they should settle those students so that they can graduate like others

Naija why na. And why were the courses suspended in the first place. You don't want them to learn?
