Wait until we give go ahead, Delta ASUU tells striking lecturers

ALTHOUGH the Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Hope Eghagha has called on students to return back to classes, the leadership of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the State led by Dr. Emmanuel Mordi is insisting that lecturers should still hold on until necessary protocols are concluded.

He has therefore told his colleagues to remain at home until they get the green light from the local ASUU over the suspension of the strike.

Mordi insisted that “after the suspension of the strike by NEC and briefing of DELSU congress on the outcome of NEC meeting lecturers will be free to resume teaching.

“The University administration as the University Senate may direct, will make the revised academic calendar public and all things being equal, this should happen in the next 96 hours”, he stated.

Academic activities were yet to commence at the Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka and Anwai-Asaba campuses even as the State.

Commissioner Hope Eghagha made the appeal at the official handover ceremony of e-library complex at the Anwai-Asaba campus, weekend while urging parents to ensure that their children and wards go back to their campuses as government had invested much in the provision of educational facilities in DELSU and other state-owned higher institutions.

Welcoming the Commissioner, the Vice Chancellor of DELSU, Prof. Eric Arubayi represented by the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics, Prof. Chukwuemeka Aloamaka thanked the State government for building a library of world class in the university noting that the library edifice has boosted the image of the university and would also enhance the accreditation of many courses in the university.

Asuu Strike Latest: OAU Lecturers Resumes, Students Still At Home

According to the report reaching us, the Lecturers of Obafemi Awolowo University turn up to school and they met empty classes. (they are even lucky they didn’t meet vampires!).

When FG and ASUU are fighting you want the students to be crushed abi? lol. On a serious note, this ASUU 2013 Strike is one of the worst in the history of ASUU Strikes!

The students of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAUIFE), Ile-Ife, in Osun State, on Monday, 2nd December, 2013 failed to resume for academic activities despite the Federal Government directive for immediate reopening of all federal Universities in the country.

A visit to the Institution, shows that none of the students were seen on campus for possible commencement of academic activities as directed by the Government.

Mr Abiodun Olarenwaju, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, confirmed that not a single student was on campus ”for any reason whatsoever”.

He said that the few lecturers on campus were around ”for reasons other than academic activities.

‘’Sincerely, none of our students show up on campus as of today, but some of the lecturers are around, although they are not coming for any academic activity, they always come around for other reasons.

‘’You know our lecturers have not totally deserted the campus like that, many of them still come around to do one or two things in their offices, but no teaching and learning activities.’’

Meanwhile, one of the commercial motorcyclists operating within the campus environment, Mr Muraiona Abiola, said that most of their members were suffering due to low patronage since the commencement of the ASUU strike in July.

According to him, the usual heavy patronage by the students has decline since the commencement of the strike, which forced the students to leave the campus abruptly.

Abiola, therefore, called for early resolution of the issues between ASUU and the Federal Government to enable the commercial motorcyclists bounce back to business.(NAN)
