ASUU strike continues

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has decided to extend its ongoing strike action after meeting ended in deadlock.

The decision was taken after the National Executive Council meeting at the union’s headquarters at the University of Abuja on Monday morningASUU had faulted the government for failing to meet some lingering demands which led to the suspension of its strike in 2020.

The union blamed the government for the failure to release revitalization funds for universities, the failure to release the white paper report of the visitation panel to universities, and failure to deploy the University Transparency Accountability System to pay salaries and allowances of lecturers.


Other demands include renegotiating the ASUU-FG 2009 agreement and ending the proliferation of universities by state governments and lawmakers.
