The Management of the Kogi State University, after a brief meeting this evening wrote a memo to the Chairman, ASUU, KSU Chapter to immediate suspend the about six (6) months old strike to enable members resume academic activities immediately.
It is stated in the memo that Government has made concerted efforts in addressing some the problems that led to the strike action by paying all cleared staff up to March 2017, the latest being the 241 members of staff who were paid between Tuesday, 11th to Thursday, 13th July, 2017, an indication that there is commitment on the part of Government.
As a result of ASUU KSU’s failure to listen to His Excellency’s plea/appeal, when he visited the institution on Tuesday, 11th July, 2017 and that of His Royal Majesty, Atta Igala and other stakeholders in education, Management has therefore directed the Ag. Provost, College of Health Sciences and Deans of Faculties to monitor the signing of attendance register and performance of duty with immediate effect.
According to the memo signed by the Registrar/Secretary to Council, failure to resume academic activities by any lecturer will attract “unpleasant consequences”.
