Fresh Crisis Looms As ASUU Threatens Strike
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has
warned that the nation’s university sector may soon be
thrown into crisis if the federal government fails to begin
the total implementation of the 2009 ASUU-FG
This was disclosed by the ASUU president, Biodun
Ogunyemi, while addressing reporters in Abuja
Ogunyem called on well-meaning Nigerians to intervene
to avert a looming crisis in the university
He urged the federal government to reverse the ban on
post-UTME and the granting to JAMB
exclusive rights to admit students to tertiary institutions.
The union leader said that since the introduction of the
Post-UTME, there has been considerable
improvement in the quality of students admitted into the
universities as evident in the declining drop-out rate.
