The Parents/Stakeholders Forum (PSF) of the Benue State University Makurdi, has appealed to its ASUU members to pull out of the national  body of ASUU to enable them to catch up with accumulated academic  calendar years.

This appeal is contained in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of the university,  Mr Tser Vanger, on Saturday in Makurdi.

It quoted the PSF’s chairperson, Mrs Keziah Agundo, who expressed concern about the unutilised academic calendar months,  explained that the “pull out” would enable them catch up with acculated workload.

She said the 2020, 2021 undergraduate programmes had  yet to be matriculated while  the 2022 Unified Matriculation Tertiary Examinations (UMTE) admissions were ongoing.

According to the statement, the Vice Chancellor of the university,  Prof. Joseph Iorapuu, calls for the resumption of academic activities in the school.

He explained that most of the grievances of the teachers bordered on funding.

The statement also indicated that the meeting was attended  by top management of the university, including the BSU branch chairman of ASUU, Dr Victor Tarnongo, who promised to present the demands of PSF to the appropriate authorities.
