The University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) chapter of ASUU has joined the nationwide 2 weeks warning strike in what is the first in 20 years.
Ongoing examinations of students were truncated as their lecturers joined the warning strike as directed by the national leadership of Academic Staff Union of Nigeria University (ASUU).
The Chairman of ASUU, University of Ilorin branch Professor Moyosore Ajao made this known to journalists in an interview after a congress of the lecturers.
He said: “The strike is total in the University of Ilorin, we are joining the strike and our members are excited because nobody has the right to take our salary for granted.
“Nothing lasts forever, we are in a new dawn, whatever has a beginning must have an end. It is an irony of life that I will lead strike in UNILORIN after 20 years, and I have no regret about that.”
“They have the right to threaten us that they are not going to pay our salaries, that they are going to get all of us sacked so that they will bring foreigners as lecturers. Let them bring foreigners and bring Coronavirus into this country.
“We will not fold our arms and allow people to destroy the collective wealth of this country, it won’t happen,” he added.
