UNIJOS academic session has been delayed by a whole semester after the institution was stuck in months of a strike action by the local union of the lecturers, between 2015 and early this year.
Classes were reopened for resumption for the second term of the session at the same time members of the Academic Staff Universities (ASUU) declared a nationwide strike, which entered its third day, yesterday.
Students' resumption for classes to complete the delayed 2015/2016 session at the University of Jos (UNIJOS) in Plateau State has been stalled by an ongoing nationwide warning strike by their lecturers.
The current warning strike further stretches the delay in completing the session.
Abdullahi Adbullahi, spokesman of the university, confirmed a stretch of delay in completing the session, but insisted he had no comment to pass on the ongoing warning strike.
Meanwhile, a visit to the various campuses of the university, yesterday, brought out the situation at the university which now looks like a ghost town.
Earlier, Dr. Christopher Piwuna, the local chapter chairman of ASUU, led a committee round all campuses on a routine monitoring for compliance to the warning strike by lecturers.
Dr. Piwuna, who addressed newsmen on Monday after a daylong congress, said members supported the decision by the national body to embark on the industrial action, and disclosed that his executive committee was collapsed into a monitoring team to see that compliance was total.
The striking lecturers are pressing for the federal government to implement the 2009 agreement, as well as the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed with the association on sundry issues including welfare packages.
