The Vice Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile- Ife, Eyitope Ogunbodede, says the institution will not join in the indefinite strike announced by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on Monday in Abuja.
The vice-chancellor said the university will continue with academic activities as no teacher in the institution has shown any interest in the on-going strike.
According to him, “OAU is not on strike. As at today, no lecturer has told me that they want to go on strike. We are not participating in any national strike.”
“If they tell me they want to go on strike, then it is a different case, As such, I must have seen that all of my academic staff want to go on strike.
He added that that there are two unions in the institution and none has disclosed that they are also embarking on the strike.
“In OAU, we have unions; neither of the two has told me they want to go on strike so we are not joining any strike at all.”
