ASUU threatens not to recognise students admitted through Post-UTME conducted during strike

By Paul Osas

The Academic Staff Union of Universities in a briefing in Minna, Niger State, faulted the National Universities Commission (NUC) for allegedly pressuring vice chancellors to hurriedly conduct the Post–UTME test, using non teaching staff and has warned that students admitted from the exercise may not be recognised if offered admission from the exercise.

The union also in a separate briefing, held at the Lagos State University, Ojo, ASUU Ibadan Zone also dismissed claims that it would call-off its ongoing strike on Thursday, adding that the strike continues until the Federal Government implements the 2009 agreement.

In the Minna briefing on Wednesday, the Chairman of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, ASUU chapter, Dr. Abdulfatai Jimoh, said that none of its members would be involved in the conduct of the post-UTME for over 3000 candidates slated for Friday and Saturday in the institution.

“Any student admitted through the on-going Post-UTME is on his or her own because we would not recognise or teach such student.” he said.
