The leadership of the unions in Ekiti State University, Ado Ekiti has directed members to disregard the notice of resumption by the school management.
The unions are, Academic Staff Unions of Universities (ASUU), Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU), National Association of Academic Technologists and Non Academic Staff Union (NASU).
According to a statement by SSANU Chairman, Mr Temidayo Azeez Aguda, management should do the needful if it actually wanted academic progress in institutions rather than coercing the unions.
The statement reads “This serves to inform the distinguished members of our unions that only the leadership of our unions can give directives to members and not the Management.
All members should please note that the strike continues. Management didn’t declare any strike hence it can’t call off what it didn’t declare.
Even the branch leadership can’t call off the ongoing Nationwide Strike, he said.
Aguda directed workers to stay back home and await further directive by leadership of the unions.
