The National Coordinator of the Congress of University Academics (CONUA), Niyi Sunmonu, says that its members are ready to resume work.

This was contained in a statement he issued on Saturday after a meeting of the National Executive Council.

Sunmonu told the federal government to reopen universities and put COVID-19 protocols and infrastructure in place.

He stressed that the education sector cannot remain stagnant.

Sunmonu said that COVID-19 would continue to be a threat, adding that everyone should strive to lead a normal life.

“The Union urges the government to make available everything that can help our universities to resume work as it is being done in other parts of the world,” said NAN, quoted by him.

It condemned the harassment of some of its members by some university administrations and other unions within the university system.

Sunmonu stated that no amount of abuse or defamation can get the union out of the way of progressive unionism.

“Appropriate action will be taken, to the extent permitted by Nigerian law and constitution, against anyone who uses intimidation or uses any other heinous means to threaten our members.”

The coordinator praised the university administrations that held meetings to promote academic staff members during the COVID-19 shutdown.
