“The strike embarked upon by the union across Nigeria is still in force in our own school …The reports in the social media announcing that academic activities have resumed in the school is false and misleading,’’ Igwenyi said.

He said none of its members would attend the school’s matriculation ceremony fixed for Saturday, Nov. 14.

“We are not unaware of the 2019/2020 matriculation ceremony of the school reportedly scheduled to hold on Saturday.

“No member of the union would attend the purported ceremony and none of us will be induced or coerced to attend the matriculation, or to resume academic activities.

“ASUU is still on a national strike, that is total, comprehensive and indefinite. And when strike action is total and comprehensive it means there shall be no academic activities.
