The University of Ilorin has joined the two weeks warning strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of University, ASUU.
The decision of the institution’s branch of ASUU to join in the general nationwide warning strike is the first of its kind in 20 years.
Channels Television on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 reported that the Branch Chairman of ASUU, Professor Salihu Ajao, says it is a good omen for the branch to return to the national body as his members had suffered various discrimination and embarrassment during the 20 years of fighting the national body.
He therefore asked Nigerians to appeal to the Federal Government to meet the demands of the lecturers as the effect of the strike could be disastrous.
The two weeks industrial action no doubt caught the students unaware during their examinations.
