ASUU Strike For 4 Months Is An Embrassment- Private Varsity VCs

Similarly, Committee of Vice Chancellors and Registrars of private Universities in Nigeria said it had begun moves to wade into the on-going face-off between the Federal Government and ASUU with a view to ending the strike.

Chairman of the association who is also Vice Chancellor of BELLS University of Technology, Ota, Ogun State, Professor Adebayo Adeyemi stated this, yesterday, during the announcement of the institution’s fifth convocation.

Prof. Adeyemi who described the four-month-old strike as a national problem as an Embrassment to the Nation, denied that the private Universities were benefitting from the on-going impasse. He said: “The development is a national embarrassment which nobody is proud of.”

He, however, said, the decision to wade into the crisis was not connected with the recent threat by the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, to shut down private Universities over the crisis.

“It is quite beyond us, but, whatever we are doing, we are doing it silently; we are trying to reach to some individuals to resolve the crisis.

“It is true that the students have made the statement, but, I think it was made out of annoyance .

“Our intention is, however, not connected with their threat. It is just that the situation is an ill wind that blows nobody good.”
