The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti chapter, has kicked against the resumption order issued by the management of the institution.

Dr Kayode Arogundade, the Chairman of the union, stated this in an interview on Friday.

Arogundade however stated that the university’s Registrar, Ife Oluwole, was at liberty to reopen the university which he shut down following the strike by ASUU.

The ASUU chairman’s remarks followed a directive by the Registrar asking fresh intakes for the 2021/2022 session to resume on Monday for screening, registration and orientation programmes. Striker workers were also asked to resume.

However, Arogundade said EKSU-ASUU was not affected by the resumption order, noting that members of the union were not part of it.

He said, “As far as we are concerned, we are still on strike. We have just finished our congress. We are not comfortable with the position of the Federal Government. We have communicated our resolutions at the congress to our national body.

“We did not send students home. It was the registrar that sent the students home. The person who sent the students home can ask them to come back. So he has asked the students he sent home to resume, I do not think anybody overheard me saying my members should resume”.
