Update on EAA Disbursement.
The Chairman briefed congress on the series of engagement the executive has had with same senior members of the University community. He also reported his phone conversation with the Vice Chancellor.
Congress noted that there was no serious commitment on the part of the University to effect payment of EAA to deserving members. Congress also noted that all political and diplomatic means to resolve the imbroglio has failed. Consequently, congress resolved that:
i. Total, Comprehensive and Indefinite Strike should commence immediately
ii. The strike must not be called off without a congress resolution to the effect.
iii. Payment of EAA must be based on ASUU computation. Anything short of this would be unacceptable.
iv. The Strike Coordinating Committee be set up to monitor the strike.
Based on the above and on the strength of the permission granted by ASUU National President, the Chairman, on behalf of the congress declared the commencement of ASUU OAU’s strike at exactly 11:53 am .
The Congress rose at about 12 noon, 31/01/2022.
