The University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) and the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT), have announced the resumption of academic activities on Monday, December 2, 2013.
This announcement was issued in a statement separately today in Nsukka and Enugu.
Both institutions have decided to follow the lead of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), which has already issued a directive to its students to resume lectures on December 2.
The Registrar of the UNN, Anthony Okonta, in the statement, stressed that “normal academic activities would resume immediately.”
The statement directed students who had outstanding examinations for the 2012/2013 session to report to their respective faculties and departments in Nsukka and Enugu campuses.
The ESUT Registrar, Chris Igbokwe, also advised students and academic and non- academic staff to report to the institution on December 2.
According to the statement, students were advised to return to their campuses at Agbani and Enugu campuses as the second semester examination would commence on Monday, December 9.
The Federal Government had on Thursday, directed all federal universities to resume work on or before December 4.
The statement, issued by the Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, directed the striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, to resume work or consider themselves sacked.
ASUU and various civil society organisations have condemned the federal government’s directive with the striking lecturers saying they would not resume. Police officers have, however, been deployed to various university campuses.
