ASUU vows to punish “rebellious” lecturers

The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, University of Nigeria Nsukka, chapter, Dr Ifeanyichukwu Abada, has warned that any lecturer involved in any academic activity during the period of the on-going national ASUU strike will be punished.

Speaking to journalists on Monday, Abada stated that teaching, supervision of exam, attending senate, boards, faculty or departmental meetings during the strike would be viewed as anti-ASUU activities.

He said: “The strike is total and any academic staff found disobeying it will be punished.

“We have set up monitoring and enforcement team to ensure that the indefinite strike is strictly complied with by all academic staff”.

The ASUU chairman, who noted that UNN-ASUU members joined the national strike on Wednesday after holding it congress, also disclosed that the union had officially informed UNN management of withdrawal of services till the strike is suspended.

“If you move around you will see that academic activities have been grounded,” he said.

He solicited the understanding of students and their parents since the objective of the strike was to improve quality of teaching and learning in universities.

“It is unfortunate that the agreement Federal Government signed with ASUU since 2009 has not been fully implemented. Parents should mount pressure on government to fulfill its agreement with ASUU in 2009”, he added.
