Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said that the Federal Government owned her Universities and can decide when to close and open them.
ASUU Chairman, University of Ibadan, Professor Ayoola Akinwole who stated this on Monday said that the Union never shut down Universities adding that her members would not be in classes but will continue to do their researches and community services.
The ASUU boss stated that the Union is on strike with her members withdrawing their services from teaching, supervising and holding statutory meetings in line with the ongoing strike.
“We remain committed to our resolve to prosecute the strike and our members have resolved not to be caged by tyrannical orders. As you know, we have appealed the Industrial court rulling. Our members will have nothing to do with teaching, supervision nor attend statutory meetings until our demands are met and the strike is suspended by the leadership of the union”
