The Ladoke Akintola University of Technology chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, and other workers’ unions in the university, have said they are not aware of the resumption of the institution, which has been scheduled for Friday, September 15.
 
The unionists also said they would not obey the directive of the university authorities asking students to resume on Friday.
 
The chairman of the ASUU at the university, Dr. Biodun Olaniran; and the chairman of the Joint Action Committee at the university , Mr . Muraina Alesinloye, said in separate interviews with our correspondent that none of the workers’ unions would resume because they were not aware of the resumption directive.
 
The JAC comprises of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non Academic Staff Union and the National Association of Academic Technologists.
 
The ASUU chairman said the union was not even aware that the university authorities had announced the resumption date. He said the union embarked on an indefinite strike because of its demands that were not addressed by the governments of Oyo and Osun states .
 
According to him , the demands included payment of their 11 months ’ salaries, earned academic allowances, gratuities and pensions , health insurance , promotion, among others
 
He said, “We (ASUU) will not resume until our demands are met. Until our demands are addressed, the strike continues.”
 
The chairman of the JAC also said that none of the three under JAC was aware of the resumption.
 
He said, “I am the chairman of SSANU, but I am speaking as the chairman of JAC now. We are not aware of the resumption and you will agree with me that you cannot obey any directive which you are not aware of ."

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from.

No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it.
