Our Strike will be total – ASUU…. suspends UI exams


By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibada.
Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has vowed to ensure total compliance with the directive on it’s one week warning strike.
Speaking at a congress held at the Faculty of Arts attended by a large members of the Academic community, the University of Ibadan ASUU Chairman,  Dr Deji Omole said in compliance with the strike, ASUU has resolved that the ongoing examinations at the Faculty of Education in the Institution “stands suspended and shifted it till after the strike”.
Dr Omole regretted that despite the benefit of doubt given to the President Mohammadu Buhari led government, “the government seems irresponsive and irresponsible” and that the strike was long overdue.
The ASUU Chairman said “letters of the strike have been sent to the Vice Chancellor, Deans, Head of Departments and Director of Institutes to stop all academic meetings, lectures, Examinations and ‎all board meetings”.
He added that it was in the spirit of the accommodating Nigerians and letting then judge between the Union and an irresponsive government that the Union decided to proceed on one-week warning strike‎.
Dr Omole noted that ASUU had thought that Federal government will utilise the window of the well publicised impending strike some months ago but that the government decided to ignore it’s warning which forced the union to direct it’s members nationwide to proceed on this painful strike.
The ASUU letter addressed to the UI Vice-Chancellor reads thus, “We write to inform you that the strike will be total and comprehensive i.e no teaching, No Examination and no attendance at statutory meetings of any kind. In line with the National directive of the Union, our members will henceforth withdraw their services till the end of the warning strike”
