The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Delta State University chapter has directed lecturers of the university to not to resume work until necessary protocols are concluded and the strike is suspended.
The Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Hope Eghagha had earlier called on students to return back to classes.
The ASUU president in the school, Dr. Emmanuel Mordi insisted that “after the suspension of the strike by NEC and briefing of DELSU congress on the outcome of NEC meeting lecturers will be free to resume teaching.
“The University administration as the University Senate may direct, will make the revised academic calendar public and all things being equal, this should happen in the next 96 hours”, he stated.
Academic activities were yet to commence at the Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka and Anwai-Asaba campuses even as the State Commissioner Hope Eghagha made the appeal at the official handover ceremony of e-library complex at the Anwai-Asaba campus, weekend, urging parents to ensure that their children and wards go back to their campuses as government had invested much in the provision of educational facilities in DELSU and other state-owned higher institutions.
