The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Bayero University Kano (BUK) chapter, has declared Monday a lecture free day in the university.
According to ASUU, the day will be used to sensitise students, parents and other stakeholders on the brewing crisis arising from what they described as the federal government’s failure to judiciously implement its existing agreements with ASUU.
ASUU disclosed this in a statement signed by its chairperson, Haruna Musa, and secretary, Yusuf Madugu, made available to newsmen in Kano yesterday.
Recall that ASUU was on strike for 10 months in 2020, until it was later suspended in December that year, after reaching an agreement with Federal Government.
Since then, however, the union has been accusing the government of not keeping to her promises, hence, the growing fear of another strike from the university dons.
“The Union acknowledges the recent intervention of the Nigeria Inter-religious Council (NIREC) towards addressing the lingering crisis and urges the FGN to listen to the words of wisdom in order to avert another disruption of academic calendar in our universities,” the statement said.
