Following the controversial deadline for resumption given to the striking lecturers by the Federal Government, some federal universities have pulled out of the strike and are set to resume academic activities.
The authorities of Obafemi Awolowo Unibversity, Ile-Ife has directed its students to resume on Sunday, December 8.
The recent development was announced in a statement by the Public Relations Officer of OAU, Mr. Biodun Olarewaju on Wednesday.
