ASUU insists on not returning to classes - read why??

ASUU


The Academic Staff Union of Universities, said it finds it difficult to return to classes in the middle of a second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, insisted that Universities in the country are not ready to re-open at the moment.


The Union is demanding that the Federal Government should review the decision owing to the increase in COVID-19 cases around the country.


While speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday, ASUU’s National President, Biodun Ogunyemi, made ok clear that one of the challenges is about the safety of their members.


In his words, “Our concern is rooted in the safety of our members,” 


“What happens to congested hostels, crowded classrooms? What flexible arrangements are in place? It is a situation of emergency. I’m not sure the Universities can cope,” he said.


“We are aware that some universities are putting measures in place, with alternative learning models,” he said, adding “some are even trying blended classes, virtual and physical.


“But these efforts are limited. They get to a point they can’t go further.


“ASUU has been talking about revitalisation since 2012. These are some of the areas where the assistance would have helped. Universities need huge funds to do this.


“People are saying start virtual classes, but more than 60 percent of our students will run into trouble – they can’t afford data or smartphones.”
