Dr Busuyi Mekusi, Chairman of ASUU at Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), Ondo State, gave this advice in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Tuesday.

“We are also pleading with the university administrators not to illegally employ impromptu lecturers.

“They should also not announce fake resumption dates or disrupt the meetings of ASUU members on campuses.

“Such measures will not abate the already frosty relationship between the union, government and the university authorities’’, he stressed.

He called for the convocation of `institutional summit` as a way of starting the take-off

of a rebirth process for public institutions in Nigeria to become more effective.

He said social transformation would not succeed unless the Federal Government was strongly committed to entrenching strong and independent public agencies.

“We must not continue to deceive ourselves that governance, democracy and politics will reach enviable heights with the kind of public institutions in place.

“The truth of democracy as the expression of the people’s will and aspirations will come alive when Nigeria has public institutions that have not been politicised’’, he stressed.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that some state universities, including that of Ebonyi, had directed their lecturers and students to return to campus on Tuesday, Nov. 26, to resume lectures and studies. (NAN)
