ASUU Strike Continues, NEC Meeting Still Indefinite, Iyayi To Be Mourned 7days

Contrary to media reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU was to hold it’s National Executives Committee meeting yesterday, the union leader of university of Ibadan, Dr. Olusegun Ajiboye has claimed that there was no plan for such meeting.

Dr. Olusegun Ajiboye claimed that stories which made the rounds on Saturday, that the National Executive Council, NEC, would hold an emergency meeting in Kano, were false.

Ajiboye was speaking in an interview on Diamond FM, University of Ibadan, UI and stated that no meeting was scheduled for yesterday, as they were still in the middle of a seven-day morning, which was declared in honour of the late Professor Festus Iyayi, a former national chairman of the Union.

It would be recalled that Iyayi lost his life in a fatal crash, on his way to Bayero University, Kano, BUK, where members of ASUU were to meet and reach a final decision, on whether to continue with the strike or accept the federal government’s offer.

It is hoped that at the expiration of the 7days mourning of Iyayi, the union will reconvene to ratify decision on the lingering strike that has paralysed the academic activities of public Universities in the country.

  1. What do this lecturer think they are doin to Nigerian student. This is just too frustrating. Bcoz of a person died a millon have to suffer. Let’s take an instance, if a student died a day befor an exam. Do you think d exam won’t b written dat day?. Its will ofcause. This is so selfish of these ASUU. I don’t khw if dey knw hw mani to student hv died within thses 4month + of dis strike. Should d student mourn them. Maybe its time for we student to do what’s right to dis useless poeple.

    this is unfair ASU

  3. I think what ASUU is doing is right, because nigeria universities can not continue to produce studennts dat can not commpete wit their counterpart in other part of the world. And also we can not continue to have graduated students which are not able to unleash want they learn from their various institution of learning.
