ASUU STRIKE: UNIJOS lecturers vote for continuation of strike

ASUU STRIKE: UNIJOS lecturers vote for
continuation of strike.
Lecturers at the University
of Jos have voted for
continuation of the on-
going strike by the
Academic Staff Union of
University (ASUU) in the
country.
Chairman of the chapter,
Dr. David Jankam who
made this known on
Monday while speaking
with THE NATION shortly
after the congress of the
chapter said members did
not see any substance in
the dialogue with the
federal government to
warrant calling off the
strike.
According to Dr Jankam, “We have just rounded off
our meeting, as a matter
of fact our members voted
overwhelmingly for the
continuation of the state
strike.
“I can also confirm to you that five of the eight
universities that made up
the Bauchi Zone of ASUU
has also voted for
continuation of the strike,
and the general saying is
that the federal
government has not
shown any commitment
so far.
“We started the meeting by briefing our members
on issues resolved with
the federal government in
their last meeting with the
president of ASUU.
“But in responding to the briefing, our members
observed that the main
issues that led to the
strike were not discussed
as part of the meeting in
Aso Rock.
“As such my members said president Jonathan is
taking them for a ride by
trying to divert attention
from the core subjects of
the strike”
According to Dr. Jankam, “I will now convey the
resolve of our branch to
our national president in
our NEC meeting
scheduled for this week. If
the majority of the
chapter voted for call off,
it will ne called off, but if
majority of chapters voted
for continuation, so be it”
said Dr. Jankam. –
