ASUU Warns Candidates On Post-UTME

The striking Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has warned that successful candidates at the various 2013 post-UTME examinations to government owned Universities may not be recognised if offered admission from the exercise.

asuu.1The union also described as cheap “political statement” the pronouncement of Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State that the strike would be over on Thursday, insisting that the strike would only be suspended if government implements all the components in the 2009 agreement and the 2012 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

Disclosing these in Minna 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 the post-UTME for over 3000 candidates slated for Friday and Saturday in the institution.

Jimoh, who was briefing journalists on the level of compliance by his members to the industrial action, warned that “any student admitted through the on-going Post-UTME is on his or her own because we would not recognise or teach such student.”

According to him, “if the management goes ahead to conduct the post-UTME, none of the lecturers who are members of ASUU would not participate in the exercise and the students if admitted would not be recognized by the lecturers.”

  • I appeal to all aggrieved students, i understand and sympathise your situations. Let us also consider that these are the people who taught those swan who so call themselves Senator, honorable,, governors, and the president. They should be giving preference hearing and special considerations. Let u have an insight to their grievances, when they are no more relevant what happens, don’t let forget for that today they are fit to demand their right and that’s why they are doing so when they are no more no body remember them, the rest is history.
