By Taye Obateru

Jos – The Senate of the University of Jos has approved Monday for the resumption of normal academic activities at the institution.

The Senate at a meeting, yesterday, took the decision following the suspension of the over three-month strike by lecturers.

A statement from the institution aired on state electronic media advised students to return to school by today  in preparation for the commencement of lectures on Monday.

Members of the academic staff union who called off their strike last week have not had much to do because majority of students had not returned.

Branch Chairman of ASUU, Dr. Timothy Namo, told journalists during the week that it was not the responsibility of the union to call students back but that of the Senate.

With the other striking unions expected to call off their strike today, full academic and administrative activities should return to university campuses next week.
