The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) did not hold the expected meeting on Saturday and won’t be held until at least Wednesday, because of the seven days mourning of the late union’s ex-president, Prof. Festus Iyayi.
The chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, in the University of Ibadan, Dr. Olusegun Ajiboye, has said that stories which made the rounds on Saturday, that the National Executive Council, NEC, would hold an emergency meeting in Kano, were false.
According to the report, Ajiboye was speaking in an interview on Diamond FM, University of Ibadan when he stated that no meeting was scheduled for Saturday as they were still in the middle of a seven-day morning, which was declared in honour of the late Professor Festus Iyayi, a former national chairman of the Union.
It would be recalled that Iyayi lost his life in a fatal crash, on his way to Bayero University, Kano, where members of ASUU were to meet and reach a final decision, on whether to continue with the strike or accept the federal government’s offer.
My people, let’s just keep our fingers crossed, wait till wednesday and see how it all unfolds
