Nigeria: Nnamdi Azikwe University Postpones Post-UTME Screening

The Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, on Wednesday announced the postponement of its post-UTME screening exercise scheduled to start on September 16.

According to the statement, the registration which was scheduled to end on September 15, is expected to continue beyond the set date.

The university said a new date for the screening exercise will be communicated later.

"Candidates are requested to regularly visit the school's website,

www.unizik.edu.ng.com or Nnamdi Azikiwe University Facebook page for
