ASUU Is not Participating in 2019 Elections – Prof Ogunyemi

Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, the president of The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has stated that the union will not be participating in the 2019 general elections.

He also said the offer from the Federal Government in the efforts to meet its demands as contained in the 2017 Memorandum of Action (MoA) is still fluid and far from expectations.

The union however, allows members to voluntarily participate but without using any material that bears ASUU or insignia that relates to the union.

This was contained in a strike Bulletin 8 issued and signed by the union’s President, a copy of which was obtained by the University of Ibadan chapter of ASUU, asked members to await further developments on the strike which are ‘rapidly unfolding.’

According to Ogunyemi, the proposal from government towards resolving the demands of ASUU as contained in the 2017 MoA is still fluid and far from expectations

The bulletin read: “Though some progress has been made with respect to discussion with Government agents (The Minister of Labour and Employment as well as Minister of Education), at the moment, the proposal from Government towards resolving the demand of ASUU as contained in 2017 MoA and Strike Bulletin 1 is still too fluid and far from expectations. Hence, it is the view of the NSCC that members should await further developments which are rapidly unfolding.

“In accordance with the ASUU’s long standing position, ASUU as a union will not participate in the conduct of 2019 general elections, although members may voluntarily participate in the conduct of the elections. However, members are prohibited from participating in the election processes using any material that bears ASUU or relates to the union”.

  1. mate your site is really cool, but it has a poor Domain Authority
    sad truth is that sites with poor Domain Authority won’t rank high in Google and in result get very little of traffic
    I had the same problem in the past and my website didn’t rank high in Google
    I searched for a professional who would help me with it; found one guy who really helped me rank higher in Google and increase my Domain Authority to 58! I’m super happy with this score
    Contact him: https://janzac.com/contact-janzac/ (his prices are very reasonable for the service he provides)

    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: https://janzac.com/
