The resumption date has yet to be announced but speculations have it that the resumption date would be 26th of September 2016.

Indication has shown that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Olabisi Onabanjo University chapter is set to resume work after embarking on a “no pay, no work” strike that lasted for about two months.

A source in the union, who spoke to ACJ-OOU on the basis of anonymity, disclosed that the union might probably call off the industrial action before this week ends after series of negotiations.

In his words, “the congress which is scheduled to hold on Thursday may put an end to the strike”
