Following up on the meeting between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the federal government in the early morning of February 14, 2022, has declared a four week comprehensive and total strike.
On Monday, the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, announced the strike at a press conference.
The strike takes effect from Monday, February 14, 2022.
He said, “The union tried to avoid the strike, but the Federal Government was unresponsive to the union’s demands.”
Prof. Osodeke also said that ASUU NEC faulted the creation of new universities.
“NEC resolved to embark on the four-week roll-over total, and comprehensive strike as the government has failed to implement the Memorandum of Action it signed with ASUU since December 2020.
