Oou Lecturers Embark On Sit At Home Strike In Middle Of Exams
Yesterday was indeed a sad day for Olabisi Onabanjo University students as students who arrived in the morning to their exam halls to take the on-going second semester exams found no lecturer in site to carry out their scheduled exams.
Did I just say, “it was indeed a sad day” na lie be that o! For some students I dey very sure say na better news fa! For the corner of their minds students who never ready for that exams it was a wonderful development…Lol..as be say na their last chance preparation be that.
Well for some students who have prepared very well it must have been truly disappointing and frustrating especially considering the fact that they have to stay in school than they have imagined.
The student soon learnt that the lecturers had commenced what they termed “sit-at-home” directive in protest over 23 months unpaid subvention arrears owed the university by the state government.
The state government was said to have being owing them 23 months unpaid subvention arrears worth N3.5 billion.
The lecturers “sit-at-home” decision followed a meeting at the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), OOU chapter, yesterday at the institution’s permanent site.
OOU-ASUU Chairman, Dr. Deji Agboola, who addressed newsmen, said members have decided to stop further activities until the state government urgently pays the subvention arrears totalling N3.5 billion.
The action, according to Agboola, would affect the on-going second semester examination.
