Strike: Academic, administrative activities ongoing – UniAbuja


The Management of the University of Abuja, UniAbuja, says academic and administrative activities on campus will go on in spite of the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah, stated this at a meeting with Provost, Deans, Directors and Heads of academic departments.

This is contained in a statement by the Acting Director, Information and University Relations, Dr Habib Yakoob on Friday in Abuja.

The Vice Chancellor described the strike as divisive and unnecessary, vowing that the management would never allow the university to be crippled again.

“As far as the management of the university is concerned, this institution is not on strike.

“Some people said they have declared a strike but all of us with the management have decided that our normal activities in the university must go on.

“Our exam is going on, senate meetings will continue, everything we do as a university will continue, our calendar will not be disrupted any longer by the grace of God.

“It is wrong to cripple the university over issues that are merely sentimental and some of which we have dialogued over and resolved, we are prepared not to allow this disruption again,” he said.

He dismissed all the reported allegations of the union which they claimed informed its declaration of indefinite strike.
