ASUU Strike: DELSU Mgt, ASUU At War Over Resumption

LECTURERS of Delta State University, DELSU, Abraka, have defied directives by the authorities to resume academic activities.

The authorities had issued a statement announcing Monday this week as the resumption date for 2012/2013 second semester academic activities in the University.

But the local ASUU leadership ignored the directive.

As a result the school has remained shut.
According to ASUU Chairman, Dr. Emmanuel Mordi: “ASUU-DELSU is pained that our dear students will, regrettably, against our wish, have to remain at home instead of receiving lectures in the various campuses of Delta State University.

“Lectures will resume when the Federal Government demonstrates good faith, transparency and integrity, by ensuring that the November 4, 2013 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is endorsed by a designated Federal Government official, preferably the Attorney General of the Federation, the president of ASUU, and a witness, in order to guard against government’s usual practice of disowning its own documents on flimsy excuses.”

Mordi, therefore, enjoined students to disregard all radio, television, and newspaper announcements inviting them back to lecture halls.

Registrar and Secretary to Senate, Mr. E. Udjo, had said in a statement that lectures would resume (Monday December 9, 2013) adding that “second semester examinations would begin on Monday, February 3, 2014.”
