A fresh crisis looms in Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State as the authorities of the institution have announced the resumption date for students of the institution.
However, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has described the move as a joke, saying its members won’t return to classroom as it dissociated itself from the resumption directive.
A statement by the Registrar of the university, R.B. Olotu, asked the students to resume on Monday, November 25 for the second semester of the 2012/2013 academic calendar.
The statement by the institution read, “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 with the continuation of registration on the university portal.
It added that lectures are to start on Monday, 2nd December, 2013.
But the institution’s ASUU chairman, Busuyi Mekusi, directed members of the union to disregard the directive and stay away from the university campus.
He said, “ASUU, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko branch, wishes to dissociate itself from the purported resumption of academic activities in the university, as its members are still part of the ongoing national strike by the union.
“Members should, therefore, disregard any pull to abandon the struggle, and be steadfast until the present position is reviewed by NEC. The union also wants to make it abundantly clear that it would resist every tyrannical propensity to intimidate and harass its members.”
