The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has dismissed report going round the media, especially social media platforms that it held of the union’s National Exectuve Council to discuss the possibility of calling off the strike.
Chairman of the University of Ibadan branch of the union, Dr. Olusegun Ajiboye, said the stories of the meeting in Kano are rumours.
He said in an interview monitored on Diamond FM, University of Ibadan, that there was no meeting scheduled by the union for Saturday as they were still observing seven days of mourning in honour of the late former national chairman of the union, Festus Iyayi.
The union was last week scheduled the meeting of its National Executive Council to hold in Kano, where they were expected to take a final decision on whether to continue with their strike or accept the FG’s offer, but cancelled it when one of their colleague and a former president of the union was killed in a car crash by the convoy of the Governor of Kogi state.
No new date has been fixed for the cancelled meeting, thus the fate of university students who have stayed at home for over four months remains unknown.
