The Academic Staff Union of Universities, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko branch, has warned the management of the school not to reopen the school as the national strike of the union is still in force.
This is in response to the statement by the school’s management on Wednesday, urging students and lecturers to resume on Monday, November 25, 2013.
The statement which was signed by the school’s Registrar, Mr. Bamidele Olotu, said, “All students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, are hereby informed that academic activities of the second semester of 2012/2013 session truncated as a result of the ASUU national strike are to resume on Monday, 25th November, 2013.”
But Dr. Busuyi Mekusi, who heads the school’s ASUU, said the union was not part of the resumption plan by the school’s management.
In a statement made available to journalists on Thursday, Dr. Mekusi said, “ASUU Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko branch wishes to dissociate itself from the purported resumption of academic activities in the university.”
He said the union’s position was necessary because its members were still part of the ongoing national strike.
