NASU Strike Slows Down Activities On Campus

Sequential to the announcement of a one week strike by the National bodies of the Non-Academic Staff Union, Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and some other pressure groups regarding the non-implementation of the 2009 agreement between the Unions and the Federal Government, the OAU Chapter of these unions have embarked on the 5-day warning demonstration leaving a big void in the operation of several activities of the University.

A visit to the Faculty of Pharmacy revealed that most of the practical classes scheduled could not hold due to the absence of Laboratory attendants in the Faculty, the general Secretariat of the Faculty was also locked.

The Hezekiah Oluwasanmi Library, which is also the place of refuge for many students who have time differences in between lectures, was also not in operation today as its usually wide open doors remained tightly shut throughout. A visit to the several other Faculties further revealed their very much hindered operations.

We hope that the Federal Government would attend to the aggrieved union before the demonstration spirals into a full strike action.
