"Our lecturers are not members of the ASUU. I believe that if we govern the university well, there would be no room for any strike action, even if there is an ASUU on campus".

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Medical Science, Ondo, Prof. Friday Okonofua, said this in a meeting with journalists on Monday.

Okonofua said the existing cordial relationship between the management and the staff of the university had made it difficult and unnecessary to initiate an industrial action.

The vice-chancellor also noted that in any university community with a proper administration in place, there would be no room for the activities of ASUU.

He said, “We in UNMIED believe in proper governance and proper accountability. In our dealings, we carry everybody along. We don’t hide anything.”

Although Okonofua lamented that the institution lacked adequate funds, he said it would remain committed to producing the best medical students in the country despite the challenge.
