We resolved to stop all academic activities in the institution until further directive is given by the ASUU national body,”

“You know we came back from Akure on Monday. We are aware of the directives to go on strike, but we have to come back to our various institutions, hold meetings and convey the message to our members for them to comply and that was what we did.

“Our students wrote examinations even today in the morning. But that will be the last as we have informed all our members to comply with the directive and stop the conduct of examinations in the university.

“So, from now, no examination or any other academic activities will take place because we have joined the strike.

“The issue is that ATBU is a member of national ASUU and whatever decision the union takes, we are legally bound by it.
