The Vice-Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN, has explained that the academic staff of the university are not part of the ongoing strike by ASUU because of the university’s structure.
Prof. Peters also said students of the school have special motivation to read and study, a development he said, made the university discourage its staff from joining the national strike.
The NOUN Vice-Chancellor, who spoke, Tuesday, at a media briefing ahead of the school’s 11th Convocation ceremony billed for Saturday, further explained that, unlike the conventional universities, his institution cannot embark on strike, attributing it to its structure.
“In regard to ASUU agitations, yes, we do have agitations, that is normal in any human association but these universities do not accept that for the fact that our students are different from conventional universities,”he said.
Prof. Peters added:“Our students have special motivation to read and study because of that we discourage our staff from joining the national strike but they have every reason to have unions among themselves but we have restricted that because our students are not students who are different.”
