NASU Ends Congress, Adopts Motion Ground As New 'Office' For 'Revival'

The Non Academic Staff Union (NASU), Obafemi Awolowo University chapter has just finished her congress which started 09:37am this morning and come out with a resolution to continue with their initial resolve which is for her members not to return to work until their demands are met.

Over 300 members of the NASU stormed the Motion Ground right at the front of the Senate building today to discuss the next line of action on their agitation for the payment of their 64 months earned allowance. Some of these members have arrived the Congress venue as early as 7:30am. The University management had directed them to return to work on or before today which they obviously defied.

The resolutions reached by the NASU after their congress include:

1.) To continue with their demonstrations until their demands are met. At least, the payment of 30 months out of 64 months earned allowance will make them return to their work places.

2.) Demand the University Management to implement their allowances using the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) as contained in the document where the Federal Government advised University Managements.

3.) NASU will reply the Ooni of Ife and other notable individuals mediating the matter of their members' position following today's congress.


On a lighter mode, some members agitate that the NASU should put forth a query letter to the Vice Chancellor and Registrar for not coming to work today despite the free flow of vehicular movement.

The Chairman of the NASU, Comrade Oluwole Odewumi however announced that for the time being, the Motion Ground has been adopted as their new main office and they will all resume their daily for their 'revival' after which they will engage themselves in various duties as the 'Spirit' leads them.

The University remains scanty as most of the students are yet to resume back to campus despite the Management's announcement of resumption of academic activities. This, according to those on campus is not unconnected to the militarization of the University main gate which many feared could lead to something unpalatable today. Some classes however held today even with very low turn up by available students.

When our correspondent contacted the Students' Union Public Relations Officer, Ojedokun Emmanuel a.k.a Immanuel Kant to know what the Union will do regarding classes and reported tests that held today and those that will hold tomorrow whereby majority of the students are absent as a result of the Union's advice for them to delay resumption, Immanuel Kant said the Union believes that even if the Management has announced resumption, they did not mean tests and lectures will start immediately. He however said the Students' Union will make clarity on this and state the Union's position in a subsequent Release by the Union Leadership.

In the mean time, the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU), OAU branch will hold a congress by tomorrow. It is not clear if it is directly connected to the campus situation but speculations have it that it is. A member of NASU who spoke with us confirmed that the ASUU has pledged her solidarity to their struggle right from its beginning. He further said the ASUU OAU branch will not mind joining them once their national body gives them the green light to do so.
