ASUU Strike: KASU instructs students, lecturers to resume classes May 9
While the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) continues its strike, the management of Kaduna State University (KASU) has set May 9 as the start date for all academic activity for the 2020/2021 academic year.
In a directive issued on April 26 and signed by the university’s academic secretary, Abdullahi Zubairu, the university urged all students and professors to resume academic activity.
The academic schedule should be followed by all instructors and students, according to the circular.
The lecturers’ strike has now lasted two months, with the Nigerian Government still refusing to budge on their demands.
Many Nigerian students have gone to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the issue.
Last Monday, Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, stated that the decision to halt ASUU’s strike could only be made by the union.
Ngige directs the striking lecturers to meet with the Benimi Briggs Committee.
ASUU’s demands include the release of university revitalization money, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, the release of earned allowances for university professors, and the implementation of the UTAS payment system for the payment of university lecturers’ wages and allowances.
