ASUU Strike Updates: UNIBEN Students Stay Away to Honour Iyayi:
At the University of Benin, in spite of announcement by the university authorities that academic activities would resume today, there were no signs of resumption in the university yesterday, as both the Ekenwa and Ugbowo campuses were empty.
Students of the university said they would not resume until the remains of ProfessorFestus Iyayi who they held in high esteem is buried. We also learnt that ASUU members in both UNIBEN and the state owned Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma were not ready to resume duties today.
ASUU chairman, UNIBEN chapter, Dr. Tony Monye when contacted said they were busy preparing for the burial of Professor Festus Iyayi even as he added that ASUU members would not resume duties.
