Professor Biodun Ogunyemi who is the President of the Academic Staff Union has charged striking lecturers in public universities to brace up for a long action.
President of the Academic Ogunyemi laid upon ASUU members “to look out and brace themselves for a long drawn out struggle to salvage the university system”.
He made this declaration in strike bulletin No 5 sent to all members of the union.
Our correspondent recalls that ASUU had been on a nationwide strike over unfulfilled past agreements by the government and underfunding of education.
In the bulletin, Ogunyemi charged members of the union to remain committed “and resolute in the face of intimidation or antics employed by the government through Vice-chancellors and Governing councils to hinder the ongoing struggle”.
He added that “Government is yet to change its “keep them talking” style and stance as all the meetings held so far with the Minister of Education are yet to resolve g of the demands of ASUU”.
Also, speaking at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Ogbomoso after their zonal meeting held at, ASUU Chairman, University of Ibadan, Dr Deji Omole, said Ibadan chapter has been fully mobilised with her members to ensure the reason for the strike gets actualised.
Omole noted that it is regrettable that the federal government who has not put anything on the table for revitalising the lethargic education sector is busy mobilising funds for re-election in 2019.
He, however, appealed to parents not to mortgage the future of their children by fighting for proper and adequate funding of public education.
