ADSU ASUU Chapter Goes On Indefinite Strike Over Mass Sack!

The academic staff of the Adamawa State University, Mubi, have embarked on an indefinite strike to protest the sacking of 24 of their colleagues by the management.

Chairman of the university’s branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Mr Molem Ishaku, stated this in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Yola.

Ishaku said the strike was based on the directive of the union’s National Executive Council, adding that the management had resorted to victimising lecturers over their involvement in the recent ASUU nationwide strike.
He said that 24 lecturers were sacked by the management, while five others were queried.

Ishaku said the national representatives of the union met the management of the university on Monday and demanded a recall of all the sacked lecturers and the withdrawal of the queries to the other five.

He said only 10 of the sacked lecturers were recalled, while queries issued to the others were yet to be vacated by the management.

Reacting to ASUU’s claim, the institution’s Information and Protocol Officer, Mr Delmond Benson, denied that academic activities in the university had been grounded.

“Only 10 per cent of the lecturers are engaged in the so-called strike,” Benson said.

He also denied the sacking of lecturers, saying that placement of some Graduate Assistants on half salary for failing to obtain their Masters degree within three years as stipulated in their appointment letters.

Benson said some of the affected lecturers who acquired their Masters degree had their full salary restored.

On the issue of query given to some lecturers, Benson said the query was issued to five lecturers that forged their Thesis. (NAN)
