The Ondo State University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa has just suspended the Six Weeks Old Strike as academic activities resumes for both Freshers and Returning students for the 2016/17 session.
The Resumption on Tuesday was accompanied with registration and screening of both new and old students of the institution.
According to the Acting Registrar Mr Felix Akinnusi while briefing the Nigerian News Agency said that the institution has resumed fully for the 2016/2017 session.
Below are his exact words:
“We have resumed fully for the first semester of 2016/2017 academic session with our 100-level students undergoing screening”
Our old students are also doing their registration.
“Although the strike affected academic activities, we will make up for the lost time as the senate will meet to deliberate on it and new academic calendar,” Akinusi said.
He said that the institution was in high spirit under a new governor, Mr. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, and a new Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Sunday Ogunduyile.
The unions embarked on an indefinite strike on Jan. 23 in order to compel the former Acting Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Adegoke Adegbite, to resign his appointment over alleged gross misconduct, corruption and abuse of office.
The unions also demanded adequate funding, urgent facelift of the institution and appointment of a substantive vice-chancellor.
