University of Ibadan (UI) has felt the first wave of the warning strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) ,Academic activities were paralysed on Wednesday at the University as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) commenced its one week warning strike.

The strike forced most students to stay indoors at their various residential areas, as the strike monitoring committee put in place by the union led by the Chairman of the ASUU in the Branch, Dr Deji Omole monitored development.

The chiarman Dr Deji Omole, who moved round the faculties to monitor absolute compliance, described the strike as successful and urged its members to continue to defend their interests.
“The congress of ASUU, branched at UI, at its meeting of April 4, received permission from the national body of the union, declaring one week warning strike beginning from yesterday, April 5th to Tuesday, April 11th,” he said.
He said the warning strike was aimed to compel the university administration to address pending welfare matters affecting their members.

He listed some of the pending issues to include,

  1. shortfall and fractional payment of salary of members,
  2. illegal pension deductions, 
  3. non-payment of postgraduate supervision allowance 
  4. and non-payment of promotion arrears.

“During the strike period our members are not to be involved in certain school activities like teaching, supervision, or attend to statutory and ad hoc meetings,” Omole stated.
He advised members to remain resolute and await for further directives from the leadership of the union at the branch level and subsequently form the national level.
