As at the time of writing this report, The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has not officially called off the strike, AAUA has joined three other State Universities, Enugu State University of Technology (ESUT), Enugu, Ebonyi State University, EBSU and the Ibrahim Badamosi University, Lapai, in Niger State to re-open their gates for academic activities.
The AAUA Vice-Chancellor, Prof Femi Mimiko, had tried to pull out of the ASUU strike in September but the local ASUU branch had resisted the move.
The school registrar, Mr Bamidele Olotu said the students of the Institution should continue their registration on the school portal immediately.
