The 2nd semester Exams of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) has been postponed from 9th December, 2013 due to the absence of lecturers. The next date of the examination has not been fixed yet.
On the 2nd of December, 2013 the school management of ESUT announced that the second semester examination will commence on the 9th Dec. following Federal Government’s directive for the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to resume work or be sacked.
The students of ESUT all turn up so as not to miss the exams, but their wait was in vain as no lecturer showed up. Prof. Joseph Aneke, the Dean of the Faculty of management and Social Sciences, said the lecturers were waiting for Directive from the Union (ASUU) to resume work.
“There is no instruction from ASUU for academic activities to resume. That is why the examination could not start today, he told newsmen.
“Due to the strike, academic activities have been postponed indefinitely until the strike is called off.
“It is a pity that students have to go, while their examinations which were supposed to start today have been postponed”, Prof. Aneke stated.
The students were extremely disappointment over the situation, urged the academic staff union of universities and federal government to resolve the impasse and save the students from the embarrassment and risk of traveling and spending money unnecessary.
The Federal Government last week updated the ultimatum which directed ASUU to resume
academic activities on December 9, 2013. But the unionist ignored it.
