The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Bayero University Kano (BUK) branch has declared Monday, February 7, 2022, as a lecture-free day.
The union disclosed this in a statement signed by the branch chairperson Comrade Haruna Musa, and the Secretary, Comrade Yusuf U. Madugu.
According to the statement, the union would educate students, parents, and other stakeholders about the looming crisis caused by “the Federal Government’s failure to judiciously implement the existing Agreements with ASUU.”
‘’ASUU has made every effort and listened to voices of wisdom of many peace-loving Nigerians and organizations to suspend the December 2020 strike action in order to allow the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) to do the needful to save the Nigerian University System from further deterioration, ‘’the statement said.
‘’Yet, the FGN has ignored all the goodwill and genuine appeals made by well-meaning Nigerians on the way forward with regard to the resolution of the lingering impasse between ASUU and FGN.’’
‘’ASUU-BUK wishes to inform all stakeholders that any action taken by ASUU would be in the best interest of the Nigerian University System. The Union, therefore urges all Concerned to join hands with ASUU in order to salvage the Nigerian University System from imminent collapse by prevailing on the Government to as a matter of urgency implement all the Agreements it freely entered with ASUU.’’
