Don’t come to UI, we are still on strike – ASUU warns DLC students, parents. Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)-affiliated lecturers at the University of Ibadan have forbade students from the university’s Distance Learning Center (DLC) from visiting the campus.
The lecturers pointed out that since the union is still on strike, this warning is now essential.
This is said to be occurring despite rumors that UI has abandoned the ongoing ASUU strike, according to DAILY POST.
However, ASUU has advised students avoid visiting the location for any type of academic activities.
The union warned parents against releasing their children for the alleged restart at its distance learning section in a statement made accessible to DAILY POST on Wednesday.
Professor Ayoola Akinwole, the chairman of the ASUU at the University of Ibadan, said in the statement that union members would not be accessible for both in-person and online instruction.
He added that the union’s national leadership had ordered a total and general strike by its members.
Akinwole stated that the union’s strike was initiated in order to get the greatest tools for instruction, research, and training.
The management of the University of Ibadan Distance Learning Center announced the start of academic operations, which has drew the attention of the ASUU-UI leadership to malicious rumors in circulation with the implication that UI has left the ongoing ASUU Strike.
“This is to let the general public know that the University of Ibadan is still completely in the grip of the ongoing ASUU strike.
As a result, unless the National Executive Council (NEC) of our Union advises otherwise, members of ASUU’s University of Ibadan branch will not be accessible for teaching (both physically and virtually), examination exercises, and attendance at any form of statutory meetings.
