University Of Ilorin, Kwara State University Shun ASUU Strike
As the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU), continues its ongoing strike action, the managements of the University of Ilorin, UNILORIN and Kwara State University have both distanced themselves from the exercise.
The chairman of UNILORIN-ASUU, Dr. Usman Raheem, said the chapter was not on strike.
However, officials of the Kwara State University, Malete, (KWASU) said there was no reason for the teachers to join the strike since they had not always done so in the past, saying: “We are fully in session, we are not on strike.’’
It would be recalled that Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) on Sunday declared the commencement of an indefinite industrial action over non-implementation of the memorandum of action (MOA) signed with the Federal Government.
Meanwhile the National president of ASUU Professor Biodun Ogunyemi has disclosed that they would stick to their guns this term except the government shows genuine interest to right the wrongs in the country’s Ivory Towers.
He enjoined both Federal and state-owned universities across the country to join the strike action so ASUU can drive home its demands.
Ogunyemi said all the entreaties made to the Federal government to honour the agreement with the union were not met hence the need to down tools indefinitely.
