The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Ibadan zone, has called on the National Assembly to intervene in the education sector crisis to prevent another strike. Dr Ade Adejumo, the ASUU Chairman in the zone, made the call in a statement made available to newsmen in Ibadan.
The Ibadan Zone of ASUU comprises state and federal Universities in Oyo, Kwara and Osun. According to the union, the call for the intervention became necessary due to what it termed “unfortunate trend of decreasing salary to public Universities”. The ASUU boss said that the academic staff at LAUTECH, Ogbomosho, may also be forced to resume their suspended strike action.
“This is against the backdrop of the demonstrated lack of commitment by Oyo and Osun states to fund LAUTECH since December, 2015.” Adejumo said that the union would not hesitate to resume its suspended action even in the midst of the ongoing examination in the institution.
