A renewed agitation by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Obafemi Awolowo University chapter for her annual leave may shift the widely circulated resumption date for the 2016/2017 academic session by three (3) months.
A congress of ASUU OAU members which held yesterday amidst many other issues deliberated on her members’ insistence on embarking on a 56-working day leave. Speaking to a lecturer about the development, he opined that the students may be going for a 3 month break.
“ASUU members have been given two weeks to mark the scripts of students starting from April 5 and this will end by April 19th. After this the university community will proceed on the normal sessional break which should be at least a month. It is now after this that we will now start our leave.” The lecturer revealed.
If this is anything to go by, all these break periods amount to 3 months leaving a new session to commence mid-July.
