AKSU strike turns diabolical as authorities, Unions trade blames
The last may not have been head of the one-week old industrial action embarked by the Joint Unions in the Akwa Ibom State University (AKSU).
Members of the university community woke up Monday morning to see the main entrance of the institution at Ikot Akpaden barricaded with traditional injunctions.
Reacting to the development, the Deputy Vice Chancellor Administration, Prof. Idongesit O. Isaac, accused the unions for being responsible for the traditional injunction, saying it was not a civilized way to press home demands in an academic environment.
Prof. Isaac said the state government is already responding to the demands of the striking workers and wondered why they had to go offline.
But in a telephone interview, Chairman of ASUU – AKSU Branch, Dr. Ime Okop and his NASU counterpart, Idongesit John denied knowledge of the latest development.
