ASUU: Universities hold emergency meetings on resumption

Findings by our correspondent have shown that public universities across the country have made plans for special meetings of senate councils in preparation for examinations and resumption.

This is following the suspension of the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities on Friday, October 14, 2022.

In a statement by the union’s National President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, the union explained that it suspended the strike based on a court order while noting that the government had yet to meet some of its demands.

According to a memo sighted by our correspondent, the University of Benin has slated a special senate meeting for October 18, 2022.

In a memo from the Federal University of Lafia, the school noted that the senate council would meet on Monday (today) indicating its focus on “reviewing the academic calendar.”

Other universities which have announced meetings for the Senate Council include the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, October 18, 2022; the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, October 17, 2022; the Federal University of Dustin-Ma, Katsina, October 17, 2022; and the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, among others.
