Unijos ASUU: We Won’t Resume Lectures Even After Extended Deadline
(ASUU) said Wednesday that it will not resume lectures until it
receives a directive from its national officials to that effect. The
chapter also added that it will not go back to class even after the
expiration of the extended deadline given by the federal government.
Speaking at a press briefing at the union's secretariat in Jos,
Chairman of the ASUU Unijos chapter, Dr David Jangkam said majority of
the 1012 union members at Unijos were not bothered by federal
government's sack threat.
Jangkam said "ASUU, University of Jos chapter, wants to categorically
state that we cannot be cowed or perturbed by the threat from the
Minister of Education and other agents of government; we remain
resolute and committed to the struggle and shall not waver from the
strike until government does the right thing."
