The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Universities has instructed its members not to attend the convocation of the college.
9jatalks stated that the decision to boycott the call could not be unconnected with the Union’s continuing strike.
In a signed statement, the President of ASUU, Professor Ayo Akinwole, claimed that the Union’s stance is that conducting convocation ceremonies is a breach of the principle of the ongoing strike.
Akinwole maintained that the union is constrained to “advise members not to be in attendance or participate in the preparation for and the actualization of the said convocation and 72nd Foundation Day Ceremonies”.
It was gathered that the union has also communicated her position via a letter written to the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Idowu Olayinka.
“To the best of our knowledge, there was no request for a waiver for such to take place in the University of Ibadan”.
