The resolutions read as follows ” The Union Should compile all the infractions and irregularities noticed in the conduct of few examinations that took place and forward to the National University commission.
” Members of ASUU-KASU did not participate in the conduct of any, examination in the university because of the ongoing strike action and have remained committed, resolute and uncompromising in the struggle.
“All forms of violation of the strike action by members are being recorded and disciplinary action in accordance with the constitution of the union will be applied appropriately at the appropriate time,” he said.
