The chairman of ASUU chapter at Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), in Ondo State, Dr. Busuyi Mekusi, insisted that his members were still part of the ongoing national strike, and debunked the reports about resuming lectures.
Dr. Mekusi stressed that the University Chapter of ASUU was in support of the action of its national body, signed the appropriate statemet on November 21, 2013, Thursday:
“We, the executives of ASUU, AAUA chapter, wish to dissociate ourselves from the purported resumption of academic activities in the university, as its members are still part of the ongoing national strike by the Union.
“Members should therefore, disregard any pullout to abandon the struggle, and be steadfast until the present position is reviewed by NEC. The Union also wants to make it abundantly clear that it would resist every tyrannical propensity to intimidate and harass its members”.
It would be recalled that in a statement issued and signed by its Registrar, R.B Olotu, the school had ordered its students to resume for the second semester on November 25th, 2013, thereby boycotting the nationwide strike.
