My fellow Comrades in the Lord, we all know Ebonyi State University (Ebsu) to be a very difficult and hard to understand institution. But on the issues of the Asuu strike, this matter is very much complicated in other words, Wahala wear Bone straight. In the early hours of Friday February 18th 2022 a declaration in a statement signed by Ebsu-Asuu acting chairman, Dr. Ikechukwu Igwenyi and made available to journalists in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State.

Igwenyi said: “Ebonyi State rose at the end of its emergency congress, Thursday, February 2022, with an overwhelming resolution to activate the nation-wide 4-week roll-over strike declared by ASUU.”

He said that EBSU Chapter of ASUU was activating and joining the strike “because ASUU is a national union that secures our welfare and protects the staff and the institutions from ‘distractive’ and destructive forces of irresponsible rulership”, adding that EBSU as a critical branch of the Union was affected by all the demands made by the Union.

This matter never finish ooo, as this is just the beginning of another drama. Late this evening another declaration statement was signed by Chairman, ASUU-EBSU Caretaker Committee, Dr Nwambeke Chinedu who made it known to the general public that Ebonyi State University (EBSU) will not join the ongoing nationwide strike of the union.

Chairman, ASUU-EBSU Caretaker Committee, Dr Nwambeke Chinedu stated this at a press briefing in Abakaliki, the state capital.He noted that one of the reasons ASUU-EBSU will not be joining the industrial action was ASUU-NEC indifferent to the issues concerning ASUU-EBSU which ought to have been resolved by the NEC.

“It is on this note that we once more call on all our members to go about their normal official duties and attend lectures as ASUU-EBSU has decided to use its liberty of not joining the industrial action.

“We equally call on our students to remain on campus as lectures and other academic activities will continue to go on uninterrupted,” he stated

Nwambeke alleged that Dr Ikechukwu Igwenyi, Acting Chairperson of ASUU-EBSU was suspended in September last year for acts inconsistent with ASUU constitution, usurpation of office of other executive members of the union among others.

“The suspended Acting Chairman refused to meet up with the resolutions of the congress which forced another Congress of ASUU-EBSU to unanimously sack the executive and set-up a Caretaker Committee to drive the affairs of the union and conduct a fresh election to put the union on a proper footing
