OAU Management stressed that the overwhelming ASUU members neither ” have the intention of going on any strike action”, adding, ” in  actual fact, lectures are on going and students are being attended to by lecturers in their respective departments”.
” The attention of the Management of  Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, has been drawn to a circular issued by a section of the academic staff, ASUU, calling on its members to go on strike, beginning from Monday, 31st January, 2022″, it said
