ASUU Joins Fight to Curb the Spread of Coronavirus

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has joined the campaign to curb the spread of the coronavirus by providing some intervention materials.

The materials included sanitisers, handbills and posters as well as jingles aimed at sensitising Nigerians on the pandemic.

The News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) reports that ASUU National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, flagged off the distribution of the materials in Ibadan on Tuesday.

Ogunyemi, who was represented by Dr Ade Adejumo, the Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, commended the University of Ibadan chapter of ASUU for blazing the trail in activating the union’s programme toward stemming the tide of the dreaded coronavirus.

” To demonstrate our concern for the welfare and well-being of the Nigerian people, ASUU members nationwide shall be willing to work with medical and paramedical workers as volunteers in their public enlightenment and professional intervention initiatives.

“All our branches shall explore areas of strategic collaboration with federal, state and local governments to provide support in terms of information and expert skills drawn from our membership across the nation.

“For us in ASUU, this is not an occasion for blame game or buck passing. However, it calls for sober reflection on what we need to do differently with our health and education.
