The announcement came from the institution’s management following a protest embarked upon by the students.

It was learnt that Oladejo said the institution’s vice chancellor, Prof Idowu Olayinka, had convened an emergency meeting of the university Senate to review the circumstances surrounding the development.
“The University of Ibadan in its wisdom has decided to shift the examination earlier scheduled for June to July, 2017,” Oladejo said.
The director said undergraduate students are to resume back in school on July 17, while the post graduate students would continue to stay on campus for their research activities.
