Osun state University ignores ASUU strike, rain semester begins


Osun State University (Uniosun) management has said the school has no intention of joining the ongoing industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

This was announced by the University’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Adesoji Ademola, on Monday, May 16, 2022, saying that the school has resumed the rain semester and lectures will resume shortly.

The statement reads in part; “This is to inform university students, stakeholders and the general public that UNIOSUN does not intend to join the ASUU strike.

“Our students have resumed the rain semester academic session and lectures will commence very soon. Please disregard any information saying that UNIOSUN will soon join the ASUU strike”, the statement said.

According to Vanguard, the Institution’s acting ASUU chairman, Dr Wende Olaosebikan had told journalists that the Uniosun branch would have joined the ongoing industrial action of it had not been suspended by the National Secretariat of the union.

“We are under suspension by the national executive council of our union. We are all affected by the demands put forward to the Federal Government by the our leaders,” he said.

The ASUU strike which began February 14, 2022 was extended on May 8, 2022 by 12 weeks to provide enough time for the Federal Government to attend to its demands.

The culmination of the union demand is, among other demands, to improve the welfare of its members, revitalize public universities and academic autonomy.
