Select Language


The University of Jos chapter of the Academic
Staff Union of Universities has expressed their
disappointment that the university governing
council has been unable to resolve the discord in
the institution which started eight weeks ago
Dr Chris Piwuna , ASUU Chairman, University of
Jos, disclosed that lecturers have made
themselves available for dialogue, but the council
and senate of the university have made
themselves unavailable.
He added that the university authorities have
been nonchalant, despite attempts by individuals
and stakeholders to resolve the issues.

Piwuna said, “ This is eight week of industrial
action and we we very surprised that this action
has taken this long to resolve and it is not because
we have made ourselves unavailable to the
university authorities or the senate. Interestingly we
have met with individuals who are interested in
seeing these issues resolved more than we have
met with the authorities .”
“ We want to ask this simple question. Is the
university closed or open? If it is open, why has it
taken the university eight weeks to resolve the
crisis? The purpose of university is leaning and
research and if a university has been closed for
eight weeks without any activity, then, we wonder
what type of learning environment is this,” the
chairman lamented.
