Students and teaching staff of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) on Monday returned to school following a directive by the school authorities.
Reportedly the authority directed them to end their 5-month-old strike and resume classes on Dec. 2 and start preparing for the 2012/2013 second semester examination.

According to the NAN journalist, who monitored the situation at the Enugu and Agbani campuses of the university, the students were in their departments exchanging pleasantries and checking the notice boards.

At the faculties of engineering and management sciences in the Enugu campus, students in their numbers were copying the second semester examination timetables pasted on the notice boards.

At the same time the lecturers held a meeting with the governing council of the university at the Agbani campus on the resumption of work.

The Chairman of the council, Chief Chilo Offiah, addressing the lecturers, thanked them for returning to work and promised to do everything possible to improve their welfare.

The executive members of the ESUT branch of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which called the strike, did not attended the meeting.
However the situation was not similar at the Enugu campus of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka: only a few students and lecturers were on campus.

NAN reports that the few lecturers were in their various offices discussing or reading while the non academic staff members were busy working.

Some of the lecturers, who preferred to remain anonymous, said they were waiting for directives from both the school authorities and the ASUU branch.

"We heard on the radio that we should resume classes but we have not received any circular to that effect,"some of them said.
