Chairman of the chapter’s ASUU, David Jangkam, who addressed a press conference Tuesday, said the conduct of the post-UME was undermining the strike action by ASUU and that the non-academic staff had no powers to carry out the exercise under Nigeria Universities Commission (NUC) and the University Senate ruleson examinations which restricts the conduct and administration of examinations to academics staff.
