ASUU Reacts to FG Decision on Reopening of schools

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has given directives on what will happen even if Federal Government order reopening of schools, whilst also denying the report which claimed they recommended delaying the reopening of schools till 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic.Asuu

The ASUU chairman noted that universities will not reopen even if other schools do because there is an unresolved issue between lecturers and the government.

However, the clarification about ASUU’s statement on school reopening was issued by the chairman of ASUU, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi in a phone chat with Premium Times on Sunday, July 19.

According to the online news medium, Ogunyemi explained that what ASUU actually said was that the FG should only allow the reopening of schools when it is absolutely safe for students.

“First, we did not say schools should not be reopened until 2021. We only advised that schools be reopened anytime it is considered safe for our children,” he said.

Ogunyemi added that the federal government should go beyond simply developing guidelines for safe reopening on paper to ensuring that the guidelines are fully implemented for the safety of students from primary to tertiary institutions.

Talking of universities, it should be noted that the crises are beyond COVID-19. There are fundamental crises that will make universities reopening longer and impossible for now.

“We had long told the Government our position and until they meet necessary conditions, universities are not resuming even after COVID,” Ogunyemi said.
