The Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, on Monday commenced its 2017/2018 second semester exams for its students despite the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

Students of English and Literary Studies department have been receiving lectures and sat for exams on Monday.
ASUU had, on November 4, 2018, embarked on a nationwide strike and since then, all academic activities have been suspended in various universities.
However, some departments in OAU are carrying on with academics as some of their lecturers who are not members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The lecturers noted that the industrial action was not binding on them as they are members of the Congress Of Nigeria University Academics, CONUA.
According to TheCable, the university’s public relations officer, Abiodun Olarenwaju said the school calendar would not be extended.
He said, There’s nothing that suggests we are going to extend any calendar. Don’t let us be speculative, when we get to the bridge we will cross it.
“The Senate of the university is in charge of the academic activities if they find it to extend, they will and if not, there’s nothing anybody can do about it. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and don’t let us be speculative
“Whether they are going to extend it or not has not stopped the students from reading, they should read.”
