The Universities Academic Staff Union has threatened to sanction members who comply with Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma’s directive to retake and present student results.
The punch learned that the school administration had asked department heads to present the newly released first batch of 2019/2020 results to their respective deans for National Youth Service Corps mobilization.
But in a circular obtained by our correspondent on Sunday, the president of ASUU, AAU Ekpoma, Dr. Cyril Onogbosele, asked union members not to comply with the university’s directive.
The circular was titled “Compilation, Submission, Presentation, Review and Approval/Approval of Student Results During ASUU Strike: Members of ASUU, AAU and Ekpoma Shall Not Comply”.
The circular read: “Comrades, the Union is aware of the directive or request from the university authority asking heads of departments to present the newly released 1st batch of results 2019/2020 and other results to their respective deans. for approval regarding mobilization for NYSC.
“For the avoidance of doubt, all academic activities are prohibited during the ASUU strike (including the ongoing nationwide strike).
“Therefore, no member of the Union shall comply with the University’s directive or request for the processing of student results in any form during the current strike. Doing so amounts to a violation of the union’s ongoing strike.
“The Union will not hesitate to appropriately sanction any Union member (non-officers, HODs, Deans, etc.) who breaks or violates the Union’s ongoing strike.
“Any Union member who does not know what to do with directives, requests or invitations from the University Administration during the current strike should contact the Union President.”
