ON ONE CONDITION WILL UNIVERSITIES REOPEN, ASUU TELLS FG
Prof. Abiodun Ogunyemi president of the Union issued a statement on Monday the 14th of September at a meeting at the African Town Hall, University of Ilorin insisting that the 2009 condition agreed upon by both parties (FG and ASUU) must be honoured before Universities will reopen. Prof. A. Ogunyemi said ‘ I think it is better we wait , when we get to that bridge we will cross it. The president of ASUU said they cannot unfold their next agenda if the FG refuses to negotiate before their next strategy will unfold.
Prof. Abiodun Ogunyemi decried the deployable condition in which the Universities are working under where stoves are being used as burners in the laboratories and buckets used to fetch water to perform experiment. He also lamented that there is a calculated attempt to destroy university education in this country. Universities closed down since March this year 2020 and also FG had stopped funding universities more than ten years ago.
