ASUU urges members to resist intimidation
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has charged its members to remain “steadfast and resolute in the face of intimidation or antics employed by government through vice chancellors and governing councils to undermine the ongoing struggle.”
It also urged them to prepare for a long-drawn out struggle to salvage the university system.
President of the union, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, stated this in a Strike Bulletin No 5 sent to all members of the union, a copy of which was obtained from members at the University of Ibadan (UI).
He said: “Government is yet to change its “keep them talking” style and stance as all the meetings held so far with the Minister of Education are yet to resolve any of the demands of ASUU.”
Also speaking after their zonal meeting held at Ladoke Akintola University,
Also, Chairman, UI ASUU Chapter, Dr. Deji Omole, who spoke after their zonal meeting held at Ladoke Akintola University (LAUTECH), said Ibadan Zone of ASUU had been fully mobilised with her members to ensure the reason for the strike gets actualised.
Omole noted that it is regrettable that the Federal Government, which has not put anything on the table to revitalise the comatose education sector, is busy mobilising funds for re-election in 2019.
He, however, appealed to parents not to mortgage the future of their children by fighting for proper and adequate funding of public education.
