The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), ESUT Branch held its Emergency congress Meeting on the 15th October, 2020 at the faculty of Engineering, Enugu. The Congress which recorded over 164 members in attendance deliberated on the recent circular that were signed by the Registrar, directing all staff and students to return on campus for the resumption of Academic activities, including revision classes and CBT Examination.
Congress noted that these directives are deliberate attempts by the University Management to truncate the on-going national ASUU strike in our branch. The Congress equally noted that any attempt to sabotage the current ASUU National struggle will attract grave sanction to the branch as it was the case in the past.
Congress therefore, resolved as follows:
1. that line with the directives of ASUU National, no member of ASUU-ESUT shall participate in any form of teaching or revision classes, be it physical or virtual until the ASUU National strike is suspended;
2. that no member of ASUU-ESUT participate in any form of examination, including submission of questions to HODs, Deans or Directors pending the suspension of ASUU National strike;
3. that no member of ASUU-ESUT shall participate in any academic activities until the current National Strike is over; and
4. that the Chairperson of ASUU-ESUT, on behalf of the congress, should covey the Resolution of the congress to the Vice-Chancellor.
Yours in the struggle
