Adekunle Ajasin University begins recruitment process to replace striking lecturers

A new twist has surfaced in the battle between the management of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) and the institution’s chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over resumption of academic activities in the school.
On Thursday, November 21 , the institution’s registrar, R.B Olotu sent a circular to staff and students to resume academic activities by Monday, November 25, 2013 without delay.
However, there were also reports that the AAUA lecturers have vowed not to return to classes until the strike is officially called off.
According to reports:
The academic war between Management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) in Ondo State and its striking lecturers has deepened following
a report that the Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Femi Mimiko has commenced recruitment of new lecturers to replace the striking lecturers, having refused to pull out of the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) strike.
It was gathered that Prof. Mimiko remains resolute about his decision to re-open the university on December 2, after he had ordered the students to resume this Monday for the commencement of the second term semester programme.
But the Chairman of ASUU in the institution, Dr. Busuyi Mekusi has described the move by the management as illegal.
He has vowed that the union would resist any action by the Vice-Chancellor to illegally recruit new workers to replace the striking lecturers.
