Latest News reaching us today, is that the ASUU Striking lecturers at UNIJOS, ABU, FUTMinna, FUNAAB, others have disobeyed the Federal Government directive to return to work or risk losing their jobs.
The ultimatum which was given to the striking lecturers by the federal government has fell on deaf ears as lecturers in many universities refused to resume.
However, it’s important to note here that the following universities:
Adekunle Ajasin University,
Akungba-Akoko [AAUA] has commenced lectures and universities such as:
University of Nigeria (UNN)
Nnamdi Azikwe University (UNIZIK)
Federal University of Technology (FUTO)
Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University (IBBU)
Ebonyi State University (EBSU) etc have all announced they are pulling out of ASUU Strike.
At the University of Jos, the governing council has given directives to all heads of departments to open attendance registers for academic staff.
And the registrar of the university, Danjuma Jilly-Dandam who mentioned in a statement yesterday, also requested departments to publish lecture time tables by today (Tuesday) to signal the resumption of academic activities and keep daily compliance registers for academic staff that report for work.
However, despite the directive, lecturers were not visible at both the Bauchi Road and Naraguta campuses of the institution as only the non-academic staff members were seen in their offices.
Students are also yet to return to school as hostels remained largely desolate when Vanguard visited, yesterday.
It’s also important to note that the situation was the same at the following universities mentioned below:
Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia State,
the two campuses of the Bayero University Kano,
Federal University of Agriculture ,FUT, Minna,
Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria,
