Adamawa university withdraws from ASUU strike

19 July 2013, 09:04

Adamawa - The Adamawa State University’s chapter of the  Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has announced its withdrawal from the on-going nationwide strike called by its national body.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the development followed a vote of "no confidence" passed by some lecturers on the chapter’s executive council in Mubi on Thursday.

The vote was passed during a special congress where Dr Kamkwis Zira was nominated as the new acting Chairman.

Zira, who announced the withdrawal, accused the ousted executive council members of joining the nationwide strike without due consultation with members.

"The new executive council has met with the university authorities and resolved to resume lectures on Monday,’’ the new acting Chairman said.

 In a swift reaction however, the ousted chapter chairman, Molem Ishaku, said he was still in charge and that the strike would continue.

 Ishaku described his removal as "an illegal development that cannot stand’’.

When contacted on the development, the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Alkasum Abba, said all he knew was that the chapter’s ASUU had withdrawn from the nationwide strike.
