Using this medium, we the NigeriaOpenUniversity Team wishes to inform the general public that finally, the River State University Of Science And Technology, has gone on an Indefinite Strike.
Actually, this information reached our educational news desks on Tuesday, the 13th of August 2012.
So we decided to confirm if this action and News of strike is correct and yes, Right now, RSUST is now on strike.
The River State University of Science and Technology, popularly known as RSUST, has gone on an indefinite strike, which the resumption day has not been announced yet!.
The Chairman of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, the ASUU branch has announced that the University lectures are going on an indefinite strike, he started that the action was put in place on tuesday, the 13th of August, 2012.
Mr. Felix Igwe also stated that the strike would continue until the visitor of the Educational Institution and Governor of Rivers State, Rt Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has remove Professor B. Fakae as acting Vice Chancellor of RSUST.
The Asuu Union are strongly insisting and urging the Governor to appoint a substantive Vice Chancellor from the three recommended People, which was recommended by the senate’s selection panel.
Surely, we all know that this strike is not in the interest of the students.
Because RSUST students had lost years of studies already because of strikes which have continuously been imposed by ASUU.
It is very important to note that both the government and the lecturers should have a common interest for the benefit of The students of RSUST, and not their own benefits, the students interest comes first!.
OUR Personal Thoughts:
Because on a very Good Day, the students of River State University of Science and Technology, MIGHT embark on their own indefinite strike against Anything.
Only then it will be made known to the lecturers and the government that without the students, they too will be affected.
But we just pray that this strike is resolved fast and students should returned back to their studies.
Time waits for no man.
