ASUU threatens sanctions against lecturers in Rivers universities over resumption


Lecturers in Rivers State-owned universities risk being sanctioned if they continue academic exercises, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) said on Monday.

ASUU National President, Abiodun Ogunyemi, expressed this while responding to the mandate of the Rivers State Government that tertiary institutions, secondary and vocational schools were to return on Monday, October 5.

Ogunyemi, who talked on a radio broadcast, 92.3 Nigeria Info, in Port Harcourt, the state capital, said ASUU had not exempted any of its branches from the continuous strike.

He stated: “We have not exempted any branch of our union from the ongoing strike.

“Any branch that does that will be violating our directives and what we do in such situations is to take them through our procedure and apply appropriate sanctions.”

The Port Harcourt Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Uzo Onyebinama, who likewise talked on the radio program, said despite the fact that the unions in Rivers State universities were on suspension for already flouting the order for strike, it didn’t anticipate that the individuals should continue classes.
