Exams Begin In OAU Despite Ongoing ASUU Strike

The Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, has commenced exams for
its students despite the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of
Universities, ASUU.
The school on Monday commenced its 2017/2018 second semester exams.

Recall
that ASUU had, on November 4 2018, embarked on industrial action.
Since then, academic activities have been suspended in various
universities.
However, some departments in OAU are carrying on
with academics as they have lecturers who are not members of the
Academic Staff Union of Universities. The lecturers said they are
members of the Congress Of Nigeria University Academics, CONUA, adding
that the industrial action was not binding on them.
Students of
English and Literary Studies department have been receiving lectures and
sat for exams on Monday. The university’s public relations officer,
Abiodun Olarenwaju told TheCable that the school calendar would not be
extended.
“There’s nothing that suggests we are going to extend
any calendar. Don’t let us be speculative, when we get to the bridge we
will cross it.
“The senate of the university is in charge of the
academic activities, if they find it to extend, they will and if not,
there’s nothing anybody can do about it. Let’s keep our fingers crossed
and don’t let us be speculative
“Whether they are going to extend it or not has not stopped the students from reading, they should read.”

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
