The University of Jos lecturers, under the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU have submitted a withdrawal notice to the school, stating it’s withdrawal from participating in ALL Postgraduate Programs, this development is due to the schools failure to comply or meet up with certain criteria.
The letter reads;
The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, University of Jos
The Registrar and Secretary to the Council
NOTICE OF WITHDRAWAL FROM PARTICIPATION ON ALL POSTGRADUATE PROGRAMMES
The above matter hereby refers;
Sequel to our earlier letter to the ASUU president dated 11th August 2015 on the above subject matter which was copied to you, our union wish to inform you that our National Executive council (NEC) at its meeting of Thursday 27th May, 2021 held at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Akwa approved the request of our branch to withdraw all services from PG programmes with effect from 20th June, 2021.
The above approval was granted due to the REFUSAL of the university administration to implement the Council approved 2016 PG sharing formula to take shares etc (see Appendix ‘A’) which is a product of the 2016 MoU (see Appendix ‘B’ , item 2) our union signed with the university administration.
Consequently by this notice;
- Our members will NOT participate in teaching and supervision (Thesis and Dissertations, examination, seminars, defence of any kind whether at PG school, Faculties, Department, Units, marks scripts, compile PG results etc)
- All members are hereby directed to comply as sanctions shall apply to any violator.
ASUU Chairman, University of Jos Chapter.
