OAU management ignores ASUU strike, says school still in session
OAU management says there's no plan to compel students to vacate the campus until the end-of-year holidays.
The Management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State has said the school is not willing to send the students home before the end of the year holiday.
The university's position on the ongoing ASUU strike is contained in a circular signed by the Registrar, Mrs M. Omosunle and obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria.
Reacting to a rumour that students had been asked to vacate the campus, Omosunle said the university’s academic calendar for the 2017/2018 session was still very much on course.
The circular reads:
The attention of the University Management has been drawn to the rumours being widely circulated that the students of the University are expected to vacate the campus.
We wish to assure all students the University Academic Calendar for the 2017/2018 session is very much on course. As there are no plans to compel students to vacate the campus until the end-of-year holidays. All members of the university community must be unanimous in the resolution to ensure that the calendar remains sacrosanct.
The management, therefore, enjoins all students and staff to continue their normal activities in line with the approved guidelines.
The University management will like to assure all staff and students of their welfare and safety at all times.
