It was just a rumour: ASUU says no NEC meeting held today

by Dare Lawal

The chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the University of Ibadan, Dr. Olusegun Ajiboye, has described stories which made the rounds on Saturday, especially on social media, that the National Executive Council (NEC) of the union was meeting in Kano on Saturday as rumours.

He said in an interview monitored on Diamond FM, University of Ibadan, that there was no meeting scheduled by the union for Saturday as they were still observing seven days of mourning in honour of the late former national chairman of the union, Festus Iyayi.

It would be recalled that NEC members of the union were on their way to the Bayero University, Kano, where they were expected to take a final decision on whether to continue with their strike or accept the FG’s offer, when the fatal crash which took the life of Iyayi occurred.
