The NASU Strike: UI on lockdown
The university of Ibadan stated the strike at the beginning of the week 20th of march, 2017 and on Wednesday, the lecture rooms were locked and classes did not hold even with the optimistic lecturers who thought the strike would not hold fully.
It was reported that the NASU (the non-teaching staff) locked the main gate and began frying ‘bean cakes’ aka trying to convey the message that the VC is Dead , because that act signifies burial rites. They also displayed little coffins. Showing their displeasure at the slashing of their salaries
