Why AUAA joined ASUU strike and still can not quit it.

Prof. Mimiko stated this when he received the participants of Course 22 of the National Defence Academy (NDA) during their tour of the university.

When asked why AAUA joined the ASUU strike since the institution is funded by the Ondo State government, Prof. Mimiko responded that before the strike began, there was no dispute between the university and its academic staff. But since members ASUU members in the institution were bound by the decision of the national body, he said, it became necessary for them to join the industrial action.

Prof Mimiko stated that closing down campuses was no longer in vogue in many countries, urging ASUU to devise new ways of channeling its demands from the government.

“The strike is not the solution. We must be courageous enough to look for an alternative. I am using this opportunity to appeal to my colleagues to come back to work. All of us must do something to get back to work,” he said.

The NDA delegation described the infrastructural development in the university as impressive.

The leader of the team, Commodore Yusuf Isah, said his team was in the state to undertake a study tour of its infrastructure to enable participants realise how the infrastructure in the state could enhance economic development.

He said the visit to AAUA was to understudy the infrastructure and challenges of the institution.

Prof Mimiko thanked the participants for considering the institution worthy of their tour.
