The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan Chapter, has called on its members to boycott the 2020 Convocation and the foundation laying ceremonies of the University.
ASUU made this call in a statement signed by its Chairman. Prof. Ayo Akinwole, said for its members, holding convocation ceremonies at this time is a violation of the principle of the ongoing strike by the Union.
The statement indicated further that the Union was constrained to “advise members not to be in attendance or participate in the preparation for and the actualisation of the said convocation and 72nd foundation Day Ceremonies.
“The notice for the university of Ibadan 2020 Graduation and 72 Foundation Day ceremonies come to our attention on Saturday 7th November. In the spirit of the current ASUU strike, holding graduation ceremonies at this time would be a violation of the principle of the ongoing strike to rescue public university education in Nigeria.
“To the best of our knowledge, there was no request for a waiver for such to take place in the University of Ibadan.”
