The University of Ibadan (UI) branch of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has ordered its members to boycott the 72nd convocation and Foundation day ceremonies of the institution.
ASUU-UI Chairman, Ayo Akinwole, said in a statement on Tuesday that the action was in the spirit of the ongoing strike.
Akinwole said a copy of the letter to boycott the ceremonies had been sent to Prof Idowu Olayinka, the Vice Chancellor of the university.
He said the action was in line with a bulletin of the union forbidding members not to participate in any teaching, statutory meetings, examinations and ceremonies of the institution during the ongoing strike.
