The management of the Taraba state university (TSU) has called off its internal strike and announced that academic activities would resume on June 3.


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) took to its Twitter account to announce the news on Friday.

“The ongoing Taraba State University internal strike has been finally called off. Students academic activities resumes 3rd of June 2019,” it wrote.

It, however, said that the attitude of the government towards meeting the terms of the 2019 memorandum of action (MoU) that was freely signed with the union is becoming unbearable.


A staff of the varsity confirmed to TheCable on Friday evening that the industrial action has been called off.

“Yes, the strike has been called off. We will be resuming after Sallah,” said the staff who pleaded not to be mentioned.

In April, the management had announced the immediate closure of the institution following the lingering strike action by the varsity’s chapter of ASUU.

“Due to the lingering strike action of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Taraba State University Chapter, I am directed to write and inform all students that the university has been shut down till further notice,” read the circular dated April 25, and signed by Imbaji Danga, for registrar of the university.


“All students’ activities are hereby suspended; all students are directed to vacate the University Campus by 9:00am on Friday April, 26, Please comply.”
