The Committee of Pro-Chancellors of State-Owned Universities in Nigeria (COPSUN) has advised the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to adopt fresh tactics in resolving misunderstandings with the Federal Government, noting that the incessant strikes were not potent solution to industrial problems.
Rising from its sixth biennial conference at Osun State University, Osogbo, holding from March 21 to 25, the administrators reviewed the state of university education in the country, proffering a way forward.
COPSUN urged the ASUU leadership to seek alternative ways of venting grievances, adding that it had been troubled by the ongoing industrial action and the consequences it poses to the already traumatised institutions of higher learning in the country.A communiqué issued yesterday and signed by the body’s Chairman, Mallam Yusuf Alli (SAN), stressed the need for strict regulation and control, and if possible, a moratorium on the establishment of private universities in Nigeria.
