The Students of Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa, Ondo State, on Friday protested over a planned strike by the institution’s Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Damilola Okunomo, President, Students Union Government (SUG), told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Okitipupa that the ASUU strike would cripple academic activities in the school.
According to Okunomo, the strike will cripple the forthcoming second semester examination scheduled for August 2, 2021.
We have decided to continue the protest until the management and ASUU resolve their grievances, we have paid our school fees and we cannot be denied our examination,” he said.
Meanwhile, in a communiqué signed by Dr Dipo Akomolafe, ASUU Chairman, and its Secretary, Dr Rotini Olorunisola, the union resolved after its congress to commence total and indefinite strike from August 2.
