ASUU STRIKE: UI Orders Students To Vacate Campus, Halls Of Residence • Exempts PG, Undergraduate Students on IT


The management of the University of Ibadan (UI) has ordered students to vacate their respective hall of residence with immediate effect

Rising from its meeting on Wednesday evening, the management attributed its decision to the two-month extension of a warning strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Tribune Online recalls that the National Association of Nigerian Students, (NANS) has given the Federal government a 2-week ultimatum to end the strike or incur the wrath of the Union.

However, the management of the University of Ibadan after x-raying the situation resolved to shut down the institution.

A statement signed by the Registrar of the Institution, Olubunmi, O Faluyi attributed the decision to the effect of the ongoing strike on the academic activities.

The statement read “the Management, at its meeting on Wednesday, 16 March, 2022, deliberated on the ongoing industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which had now been extended by eight (8) weeks.


“As a result, academic activities in the University have become paralysed.

“Consequently, the Vice-Chancellor, on behalf of Senate has directed that the University be closed until further notice.

“Therefore, all students are hereby mandated to vacate the halls of residence with immediate effect.

“Postgraduate students who have paid their school fees and undergraduate students who are on an industrial attachment or practical training are exempted from this vacation notice. Such students are to visit the Office of the Dean of Students for accommodation arrangements.

“A new date of resumption will be communicated in due course.

“The management wishes our students a safe journey to their various destinations.”
