The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has, after prolonged deliberations, declared a nationwide strike following the Federal Government’s inability to implement previous agreements.
The strike was declared on Monday during a press conference addressed by the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke.
According to ASUU National President, the strike will be “comprehensive and total”.
He, however, said the industrial action would last for the period of four weeks to enable the Federal Government to make changes.
The ASUU President vowed that the union would embark on an indefinite strike if their demands are not met within one month.
Recall that ASUU had last week, sensitised and mobilised lecturers and students across all universities on the reason the union is deciding to down tools.
