The Education Rights Campaign (ERC) has condemned the recent closure of the University of Abuja following students’ protests for a resolution of the crisis between the management and the university chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU so as to allow the conduct of examinations.

It would be recalled that the ASUU-UNIABUJA chapter commenced an indefinite strike on June 2, 2014 to protest the alleged misappropriation of funds allocated to the institution by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor James Adelabu. The National Coordinator of the ERC, Mr. Hassan Soweto in a news release said that the closure of the university is ‘an attack on the fundamental rights of the students of UNIABUJA, who hit the streets in protest saying that the crisis in the university is unwarranted.

We call on the UNIABUJA management to meet the demands of the lecturers in order for the university to resume for students to sit for the examinations.’ The ERC also called for national protest national of Nigerian students to resist the wave of fee hike as in OAU, LASU, UNIPORT and TASUED. It also called for solidarity protests in support of the protracted strike action of ASUP and COEASU and attacks on democratic rights as was the case in UNIABUJA. [Vanguard]
