ASUU Strike: OAU Management Stop Students From Going Home

Published

The management of Obafemi Awolowo University has declared that students should disregard the directive of the school’s chapter of Academic Staff Union of universities (ASUU), which stated that they should vacate the campus.

The OAU ASUU chairman, Adeola Egbedokun, after a meeting held on Tuesday, declared a total strike in compliance with the nation-wide industrial action declared by its national body.

“We love our students and they should go home because we don’t want them to be victims of whatever action that will accompany the strike,” Mr Egbedokun said.

It should be recalled that the ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi, on Sunday, gave poor funding for Revitalisation of Public Universities based on the FGN-ASUU Memorandum of Understanding of 2012, 2013, and the Memorandum of Action of 2017, as the main reason for the industrial action.

“The strike is total and comprehensive. No teaching, No examination, and No attendance at statutory meetings of any kind (Senate, Council, College/Faculty Departmental Boards etc),” he said, in a statement.

According to the University’s registrar, Margaret Omosule, in a statement issued on Tuesday, there are no plans to compel students to vacate the campus until the end of year holidays.

“(We) wish to assure all students that the University Academic Calendar for the 2017/2018 Academic Session is very much on course. There are no plans to compel students to vacate the campus until the end of year holidays and all members of the University community must be unanimous in the resolution to ensure that the Calendar remains sacrosanct.”

“The University Management therefore enjoins all students and staff to continue their normal activities in line with the University’s approved guidelines,” the registrar noted.

However, Naija News learnt  that some lecturers have refused to attend lectures and some who attended were sent out on Tuesday.
