The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ambrose Alli University (AAU) chapter has released a memo informing the students of the University that they are still on strike regardless of the resumption date that was earlier announced by the Management, Myschoolnews.ng reports.

 

In a recent Press release that was issued on Monday, 23rd May, 2022 and obtained by Myschoolnews.ng. The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ambrose Alli University (AAU) chapter informed the students of the University that the Union is still much on strike in contrast to the internal memo that was earlier released by the University Management stating that the school would be resuming for academic activities on 26th, May 2022.

The memo reads thus;

ASUU AAU, EKPOMA IS STILL FULLY ON STRIKE: ANY RESUMPTION NEWS IS A HOAX

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ambrose Alli University (AAU) Ekpoma chapter yesterday maintained that the Lecturers in the University are still on strike and will remain on strike till its suspension by the national Leadership of the Union.

In a swift reaction to the University’s memorandum of Monday 23rd, May 2022, signed by the Acting Registrar, Mr. Ambrose Odiase which directed students to return to the University’s Halls of residence, effective Thursday 26th May, 2022, the University’s chapter of ASUU dismissed any possibility of a resumption of academic activities in the institution in the face of the ongoing national strike embarked upon by the Union.

The Union dismissed rumours making rounds that the University’s branch of ASUU has pulled out of the national strike, advising the University Administration to use this period of national strike to resolve the salary crisis in the University to avoid automatic continuation of a strike action in the University after the eventual suspension of the national strike

In a statement signed by Dr. Cyril Oziegbe Onogbosele and Dr. William Odion, Chairperson and Acting Secretary respectively, the Union said, “for avoidance of doubt, ASUU AAU, Ekpoma Chapter is irrevocably committed to the ongoing national strike by our Union and is resolved to resist any attempt to break it”.

The Union said in the statement that “It will be counterproductive to receive students back to the University when our members will not be available to attend to the students or teach because of the ongoing strike” and insisted that “the strike is total and comprehensive”.

The Union wishes to appeal to our esteemed Students to remain at home till the suspension of the nation strike and the subsequent resolution of the crisis of salaries in the University. It also advised the University Administration not to give a false hope of resumption of academic activities in AAU in the face of the ongoing national strike and without resolving the crisis of unpaid salaries, check-off dues and other sundry deductions.

The Union counseled the students to remain at home till the suspension of the national strike and the subsequent resolution of the crisis of salaries in the University.

The Union advised parents and guardians that “ASUU AAU, Ekpoma is fully on strike and therefore should be guided not to risk the lives of our dear children by allowing them to travel unnecessarily because of a directive to return to halls of residence when there will be no academic activities”.

The strike has not been suspended and it would therefore be unwise to bring Students back to the deserted university campus, the Union said.

In particular, the Union wants to advise the Acting Vice-Chancellor to beware of some desperate power-seeking members of Staff Union who might want to lure or mislead him to the belief that the University could open for academic activities with or without the suspension of the national strike; the payment of unpaid salaries and other entitlement of workers in the University; and the brewing problem of non-payment of January 2022 salary to a large number of members of the Union for no just reason.

Signed:
Dr. Cyril Oziegbe Onogbosele
Chairperson, ASUU, AAU, Ekpoma.

Dr. William Odion
Acting Secretary, ASUU, AAU, Ekpoma.

For and on behalf of all members of ASUU, AAU, Ekpoma
