The ongoing strike by ASUU has taken another dimension at the University of Jos, as the ASUU chapter of the university has condemned the authorities of the institution for conducting post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) test while the union was on strike.

This is as members called for the outright cancellation of the test.

Addressing newsmen after its congress in Jos, the chapter chairman, Dr David Jangkam, said the use of non-academic staff to conduct a test that was purely academic was wrong and contravened the laid down procedures.

He said since the strike was total, comprehensive and indefinite, what it means was that no academic activities in whatever form should take place until the strike was suspended.

He said other universities which had set dates and time for the post-UTME indefinitely suspended the exercise, due to the ongoing national strike, adding that instead of doing same, University of Jos conducted the test using non-academic staff of the university.
