Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) will on Tuesday resume academic activities and on Wednesday, restart examinations suspended as a result of a fire incident.


A fire outbreak caused by a generator last week Wednesday razed the first floor of the all-female Bakassi Hostel.

Following the incident, the management of the institution suspended every academic activity, including the ongoing examinations.

Five days later, the suspension has been lifted, according to Charles Oni, director, public relations unit of the college.


He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that: “Academic activities will resume on Tuesday, Nov. 29, while examination continues on Wednesday.

“As at Friday, when the representative of the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, visited the college, only two students were still on admission at the Military Hospital, Yaba.

“The college did not completely close; normal work is going except the academic activities that were suspended.”
