The management of the University of Abuja has said that academic and administrative activities on campus would go on despite the reported strike embarked on by the school’s chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The vice chancellor of the university, Professor Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah, who said this during a meeting with provosts, deans, directors and heads of academic departments, described the strike as divisive and unnecessary, vowing that the management would never allow the school to be crippled again.

“As far as the management of the university is concerned, this institution is not on strike. Some people said they had declared a strike, but all of us, with the management, have decided that our normal activities in the university must go on. Our exam is going on, Senate meetings will continue. Everything we do as a university will continue; our calendar will not be disrupted any longer, by the grace of God,” he said.

The vice chancellor, according to a statement by the acting Director, Information and University Relations, Dr Habib Yakoob said, “It is wrong to cripple the university over issues that are merely sentimental, some of which we have dialogued over and resolved.”

Na’Allah debunked all the reported allegations of the union, which it claimed informed its declaration of an indefinite strike, saying they are not the only university that has advertised, and that it was done by the minister of education.

He also described the union’s allegations of illegal recruitment, promotion, delay in the election of deanship and microfinance bank establishment as unfounded, saying the university had followed due process in all of these matters and ensured that relevant institutions concerned with oversights were contacted.
