Varsities defy ASUU strike to write exams

The indefinite nationwide strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities in Nigeria (ASUU) could not prevent the Osun State University from holding examinations on Monday.

ASUU declared the indefinite nationwide strike due to the Federal Government’s failure to fulfil the 2009 agreement made with the union but the attempt by the UNIOSUN branch of ASUU to stop the examinations failed.

Some members of ASUU in the university who wanted to prevent the examination in certain campuses of UNIOSUN could not succeed and the students were able to sit and write their examination as scheduled.

It was gathered that the Vice-Chancellor of UNIOSUN, Professor Labode Popoola threatened to deal with any staff that disrupt theexamination. The students of the university commended the VC for his action.

However, it was gathered that the ASUU National Executive Council might mobilise members of the union from university that are close to UNIOSUN such as the University of Ibadan and the Obafemi Awolowo University to halt subsequence examinations in UNIOSUN until the end of the strike.

Also at Obafemi Awolowo University, (OAU) Ile-Ife, the ASUU strike did not prevent the ongoing examination as the students wrote their examinations under peaceful atmosphere without any hindrance.

The factional chairmen of OAU chapter of ASUU, Dr Caleb Aborisade and Dr Niyi Sumonu could not be reached at the time of filing these reports and there was no indication on the campus to suggest that ASUUstrike would be effective in Ife this time.

The Public Relation Officer of OAU, Mr Biodun Olanrewaju said the examination was taking place under a conducive atmosphere and that the ASUU strike would not stop the examination.

Report a problem.
