UNICAL, FUDMA, others resume activities after ASUU strike

Lecturers across federal varieties in the country have resumed academic activities for fresh and old students of the institutions.

They include the University of Calabar (UniCal) in Cross River State, as well as those of the Federal University, Dutsinma (FUDMA) in Katsina State, and the Umaru Musa Yar’Adua University, also in Katsina.

A check yesterday by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on UniCal’s campus in Calabar showed that fresh students were already visiting some offices for their registration.

Also, some final-year students of the institution were busy doing their clearances at different points on campus.

When journalists visited FUDMA’s main campus, the lecturers were seen holding meetings, showing their readiness to get back to work.

But the university’s campuses at the temporary and permanent sites remained empty as students were yet to return for the commencement of academic work.

Also, at the state-owned Umaru Musa Yar’Adua University, lecturers were on campus in preparation for the resumption of academic activities.

The university’s spokesman Abdulhamis Danjuma said: “ASUU’s UMYU chapter has called off its eight-month strike and the university management will direct the reopening of the institution shortly after the Senate meeting.”

At UniJos, our correspondent gathered that the management had approved the continuation of the registration of undergraduate and postgraduate students for the 2020/2021 academic session.
