Benue State University (BSU) Management is set to resume as varsity Vice Chancellor, Prof Joseph Iorapuu, has called for the resumption of academic activities in the institution.
Parents/Stakeholders’ Forum of the Benue State University, Makurdi, has appealed to ASUU members in the institution to pull out of the national body to enable them to catch up with accumulated academic calendar years.
The appeal was contained in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the university, Mr Tser Vanger, on Saturday in Makurdi, the state capital.
The statement quoted the PSF chairperson, Mrs Keziah Agundu, who expressed concern about the unutilized academic calendar months, explained that the pullout would enable the lecturers to reduce the accumulated workload.
She said the 2020 and 2021 undergraduate programmes had yet to be matriculated, while the 2022 Unified Matriculation Tertiary Examination admission was ongoing.
According to the statement, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof Joseph Iorapuu, called for the resumption of academic activities in the institution.
He explained that most of the grievances of the lecturers bordered on funding.
The statement also indicated that the meeting was attended by top management and employees of the university, including the BSU branch Chairman of ASUU, Dr Victor Tarnongo, who promised to present the demands of the PSF to the appropriate authorities.
It will be recalled that the Benue state university chapter of ASUU joined the national body about seven months ago in solidarity to press home on the federal government to implement its agreement entered with ASUU a couple of years ago.
