Ebonyi State, Abakaliki - Authorities of the Ebonyi State University in state's capital have made public their decision to pull out of the current ASUU (Academic Staff Union of Universities) strike.
According to the statement by the
institution’s Registrar, Mr. Sam Egwu, the decision comes after the ASUU National Executive Council failed to halt the strike at the weekend meeting.
Academic activities will resume in all the university campuses on Tuesday.
"Having waited patiently for Federal Government and ASUU to resolve the impasse occasioned by the over four months strike embarked upon by the union to no avail, the management of EBSU on Monday, November 26 resolved to reopen the school, the statement read in part. "We therefore inform all concerned that teaching and learning will begin fully on Tuesday, 26th, November, 2013. This is to enable us cover what we have lost to the strike."
Will this be seen as a sign for other institution to resume their academic activities?
Are you glad?
