Lecturers at the two tertiary instititutions owned by Ondo State – University of Science and Technology (OSUSTECH) Okitipupa, and the Adekunle Ajasin University (AAUA), Akungba-Akoko, have spurned the appeal by Governor Olusegun Mimiko asking them to resume work.

Instead, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of the institutions resolved to continue with the ongoing ‘no pay, no work’ action to actualise its demands.The governor had recently at separate meetings with the leadership of the unions pleaded with the teachers to suspend their strike in the interest of the students, promising to offset their salaries on resumption.

In a communiqué issued at the end of its last congress, the branch ASUU chairman, Dr. Dipo Komolafe, said the union wants OSUSTECH to be well maintained in addition to appointing a substantive vice chancellor for the institution.

Following the lecturers’ insistence, students have been ordered off the campuses till normalcy returned.The AAUA management, in a statement by the Registrar, M.S Ayerun, said the Vice -Chancellor, Prof Igbekele Ajibefun, had directed all students to proceed on a recess.
