The attention of the Management of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, has been drawn to a circular issued by a section of the academic staff, ASUU, calling on its members to go on strike, beginning from Monday, 31st January 2022.
The University Management is using this medium to inform the general public, particularly our students, their parents, or guardians, that the overwhelming majority of the academic staff in OAU are NOT ON STRIKE nor do they have the intention of going on any strike action. In actual fact, lectures are ongoing and students are being attended to by lecturers in their respective departments.
In view of this, parents, guardians, alumni, and friends of the University are assured of an uninterrupted academic calendar, as our students are advised to go about their normal academic activities because there is no cause for concern or alarm.
In addition, the University Management wishes to appreciate the majority of lecturers who have the interest of the students at heart, and have been teaching and attending to students.
