It has been reported that the management of the Imo State University (IMSU), has pulled out from the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). The school has also announced the commencement of academic activities.
This was made known to newsmen in Owerri through the IMSU, Public Relations Officer, PRO, Ralph Njoku. The university asked its students and staff members to resume school on Tuesday, September 20.
He stated that the decision to pull put of the strike was taken by the management of the university in order note to shortchange the next generation and lose so many students who are desirous of education especially applicants who were yet to be matriculated.
In his words, “The management has decided to open the university for academic activities. We don’t have any issue with ASUU we just open the school for academic activities. Lecturers who are willing will now come to start lecturing.
“We decided that we don’t want to shortchange our next generation. Just like the 2022 applicants, we have not even matriculated them and we are coming up with 2022/2023 if we keep delaying we will lose so many people who are desirous of University education. So, we felt it is time to hold the bull by the horn.”
