State Varsity Backs Out Of ASUU Strike, Resumes Classes


The Delta State University, Abraka, has directed the students to immediately return for academic activities after backing out of the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU strike.

It was gathered that the decision was reached following the 183rd regular meeting of DELSU Senate held on Wednesday in Abraka.

The statement containing the resumption of studies at the institution after the Senate meeting was posted on the official Twitter handle of the institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Andy Egwunyenga, on Thursday.

It read in part, “This is to inform the University Community, particularly staff, Undergraduate and Postgraduate Students that Senate of the Delta State University, at its 183rd Regular Meeting, held on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, deliberated extensively on the approved University’s Academic calendar and decided as follows:

“that the University approved Academic Calendar would be followed strictly;

“that all undergraduate and Postgraduate students are to return to campus immediately and commence lectures; and

“that Faculties and Departments should ensure that academic activities commence fully.

“Consequently, all students are expected to return to campus and commence academic activities with immediate effect”.

After its initial one-month warning strike over Federal Government’s non-compliance with their earlier agreements, ASUU extended the strike to an extra four weeks.
