Breaking: ASUU Embarks On Nationwide Strike
The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities has announced the commencement of the union indefinite nationwide industrial action.
He made this announcement during the union’s National Executive Council meeting in Abuja.
ASUU resolved that the indefinite strike would ensure that there would be no meeting at any of its branches across the country.
It also said that no academic activity, including examination or tutorials should hold in all universities nationwide.
Dr. Ogunyemi declared officially a total, comprehensive and indefinite nationwide strike after a nationwide consultation with members at an emergency NEC meeting held on Monday.
ASUU said that it had taken the decision to begin strike due to the failure of the Federal Government to address the problems in the university.
The universities are suffering from paucity of funds, lack of research grants, unpaid allowances and so on.
