ACADEMIC Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has threatened to sanction lecturers in Rivers State-owned universities if they resume lectures.
President of ASUU, Abiodun Ogunyemi, stated this while reacting to the directive of Rivers State Government that both tertiary institutions, secondary and vocational schools will reopen on Monday, October 5.
Ogunyemi said ASUU had not exempted any of its branches from the ongoing strike.
“We have not exempted any branch of our union from the ongoing strike.
“Any branch that does that will be violating our directives and what we do in such situations is to take them through our procedure and apply appropriate sanctions,” he said.
