We Have Not Called Off Strike ― AAU ASUU

Students of Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, Edo State itching to return to school may still have to tarry some time because the local chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has refuted claims that it has called off the nationwide strike which was approved by the national body last March.

In a joint statement, on Tuesday, by the chairman, Prof Monday Lewis Igbafen, and the secretary, Dr Anthony Aizebioje-Coker, mentioned that the union was is in receipt of information credited to authorities of the establishment that the college has been scheduled to reopen for academic activities on December 20, 2020.

”The Ambrose Alli University’s Chapter of ASUU needs to inform most people (college students and parentd in particular) that the nationwide strike approved by ournational body in March this yr has not been suspended to necessitate thereopening of the college.

The chairman and the scribe noted that the strike has not been suspended as only the nationwide management of the Union can direct the suspension of the strike, including:

“ASUU AAU, Ekpoma needs to advise our pricey students, parents and guardians that ASUU AAU, Ekpoma is fully on strike, like other branches in public universities, and subsequently they need to be guided to not danger the lives of our dear students by allowing them to risk their lives unnecessarily on our treacherous roads due to a purported resumption of actions within the university.”

They continued: “Indeed, it’s the robust view of the union that it is going to be counterproductive to reopen the university when our members won’t be available to attend to the scholars in any manner or educate due to the on-going strike. The strike is complete, indefinite and comprehensive.”
