Gombe State University, GSU, has asked its 100-level students to report back to campus after nearly seven months of industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
ASUU in February this year declared an industrial action that suspended academic activities in Nigeria’s public universities. The reason for ASUU’s action is the consistent failure of the federal government to honour the Memorandum of Action it ratified with the union a couple of years ago.
Musa sarki, Deputy Registrar of GSU in a statement on Thursday, GSU said 100-level students of the university would resume normal academic activities on August 22, 2022.
“Consequent upon consultations held among the various stakeholders in the university, it was resolved to allow 100 level students to report back on Monday, August 22, 2022, to complete their registration processes, matriculate and complete the first semester, 2021/2022 academic session.
“Accordingly, all 100 level students are to report to their respective department on Monday,” the statement read in part.
