ASUU strike: Wait until you get a go ahead – Union leaders warn


by Akintomiwa Agbaje

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Delta state has refused to go back to class after Prof. Hope Eghagha, the Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, called on students to resume.

He has therefore told his colleagues to remain at home until they get the green light from the local ASUU over the suspension of the strike.

Commissioner Hope Eghagha made the appeal at the official handover ceremony of e-library complex at the Anwai-Asaba campus, weekend while urging parents to ensure that their children and wards go back to their campuses as government had invested much in the provision of educational facilities in DELSU and other state-owned higher institutions.

“The University administration as the University Senate may direct, will make the revised academic calendar public and all things being equal, this should happen in the next 96 hours”, he stated.

The Vanguard reports:

Welcoming the Commissioner, the Vice Chancellor of DELSU, Prof. Eric Arubayi  represented by the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics, Prof. Chukwuemeka Aloamaka thanked the State government for building a library of world class in the university noting  that the library edifice has boosted the image of the university and would also enhance the accreditation of many courses in the university.

Academic activities were yet to commence at the Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka and Anwai-Asaba campuses even as the State.

Mordi insisted that “after the suspension of the strike by NEC and briefing of DELSU congress on the outcome of NEC meeting lecturers will be free to resume teaching.

Dr. Emmanuel Mordi, the state unions leader, is insisting that lecturers should still maintain status quo till all necessary protocols are concluded.
