Students of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife have been thrown into confusion following conflicting directives on the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) .

The Branch Chairman of the union, Adeola Egbedokun, in an interview reiterated the stance of the national body that the strike is total.

“The strike is total. No teaching, no exam, no statutory functions. We are not doing anything except observation of the National Body.

“We hereby tell our students that we love them and we don’t want to lose any of them at the cause of anything that may happen during the industrial action”

However, lecturers of same university under the Congress of Nigerian Universities Academic (CONUA) have vowed to continue the running of day to day activities in the school.

“We can’t generally be part of what we are not privy to. We were not taken into consideration; we were approached on the issue. So, we can’t be part of the strike. Our members still respect statutory duties”, said Niyi Sunmonu, the chairman of CONUA.

The national strike was declared on Sunday by ASUU national president, Biodun Ogunyemi after the National Executive Council meeting at the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) in Ondo State.

All academic staff of universities were directed to withdraw their services immediately.

He disclosed that the strike became necessary due to failure
