Yobe State University (YSU) Joins ASUU Strike, Academic Activities in the School Halted by : 1:33 pm On November 13, 2018

Yobe State University has joined the ASUU strike following a total compliance with the nationwide strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU branch of the university in Damaturu.

ASUU 2018
The resumption date of the University which was formerly slated to be on the 19th of November has been shifted till further notice.
The chairman of the ASUU branch, Mohammed Adamu Gulani, confirmed that the academic staff of YSU has fully complied with the ongoing nationwide strike as directed by the mother union.
“Yes, Yobe State University branch is part of the ongoing ASUU strike. We are a chartered branch, so we have to join the strike,” he said.
Gulani explained that as a chartered branch, they cannot run away from their mother union, despite that the university will soon commence the registration of new and returning students.
On the alleged non-compliance of ASUU strikes previously by the branch, he debunked the claim, stressing that the branch of the union since its inception over six years ago has been loyal to the national body of the union by answering calls for a strike.
“Since the inception of our union as a chartered branch, we are fully complying with strike directives whenever the national body begins a nationwide strike, even the 2013 strike we fully joined it which lasted for six months,” he recounted.
Gulani disagreed with the notion that it was the state government that provided all infrastructures in the institution as assumed by some individuals, noting that a greater percentage of the structures were provided by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND NEEDS ASSESSMENT) over the years.
“When you go round the university almost everything is read TETFUND NEED ASSESSMENT. We know that the state government is doing its possible best to see that the university survives,” the chairman stated.
He was of the view that the strike action which the YSU branch joined was in the best interest of its members and the state at large.
In his words, “in 2013 when Federal Government disbursed money to all Nigerian universities, Yobe State University was included as it has benefited from that amount and now the Federal Government is still trying to give out N20 billion, still Yobe State University is going to enjoy. It is only chartered branches that were given this money.”
Mohammed Adamu Gulani, however, said that the government will look into the demands of the union in proper time so that YSU students would not be denied coming back to the school.
