He said, “OAU is not on strike. As at today, no lecturer has told me that they want to go on strike.”
We are not going to participate in any national strike. If they tell me they want to go on strike, then it is a different case, As such, I must have seen that all of my academic staff want to go on strike.
He added, “In OAU, we have ‘unions’ neither of the two has told me they want to go on strike so we are not joining any strike at all.”
