The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Bayero University Kano (BUK) branch has complied with the union’s call for indefinite strike.
This was made known to newsmen by the BUK ASUU chairman Dr. Ibrahim Barde recently.
“We also decided to go on the strike because government did not also meet our demand on the Memorandum of Action MoA signed between the two parties” he explained.
ASUU in BUK told newsmen early in October while rejecting the introduction of Education Bank that it is calling on well meaning Nigerians to prevail on the government to meet with the MoA demand of the Union to avoid industrial action.
“To ASUU strike is always the last option to make government responsive because it appears they don’t understand the language of negotiations” he declared then.
Meanwhile, students have vacated the campus especially the undergraduates, having concluded their examination. However, the post graduates are yet to finish their examinations.
To some of the students, it is a right time to go on the strike because they are through with their examination and are also in support calling on the authorities to take the issue of education serious.
The usually busy areas of the new sight of BUK are now empty as most students have left.
