VC’s Oppose ASUU’s Stance on Resumption, Insist Schools are Safe for Resumption

The Vice Chancellors of some private and public have countered the statement made by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), who called for schools to remain closed.

One of the Vice Chancellor’s from the Souwest maintained that the ASUU lacked the jurisdiction to make such a statement, adding that most schools have put in place adequate modalities for resumption.

Another hinted that due to the scare of the COVID-19, some schools have arranged for a phase-by-phase resumption.

Prof. Felix Salako, the Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.

“I think ASUU should begin to speak to facts. Inasmuch as we do not want the COVID-19 outbreak on our campuses, we had our plans. Some academic activities can resume for classes with a few populations,” one of the VCs told our correspondent on the telephone.

“LASU recently held examinations for students in compliance with COVID-19 guidelines, and it went well. What do they mean by saying there is no guideline for reopening?” another VC queried.
