2 CONUA is a splinter group of the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) not in agreement with the union’s on-going strike which began since Feb. 14.
It says its charge is in consonance with Wednesday’s ruling of the National Industrial Court restraining ASUU from continuing with the strike.
3 Its National Coordinator, Dr Niyi Sunmonu, told newsmen that it was imperative that the vice-chancellors reopened the universities since the court is one of the recognised tools of democratic engagement in Nigeria.
4 “Since CONUA members have not been on strike, re-opening the universities will make it possible to duly continue to work and stem restiveness among students.
5 “Re-opening the universities will also facilitate the restoration of peace to the nation,’’ Sunmonu said.
