ASUU To Embark on Nationwide Strike

- Advertisment -

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has threatened to embark on a nationwide strike to press home its demands for the implementation of its 2009 agreement with the Federal Government.

The ASUU Lagos Zone Coordinator, Prof. Olusoji Sowande, said this at a news conference on Tuesday in Lagos.
Sowande said that the union was planning to toe this part after several efforts to ensure that the government address the pending demands, proved abortive.
He said that the 2009 FG/ASUU agreement, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on funding of state universities, breaches of the conditions of service and re -negotiation of the agreement, were still pending. ‎
The coordinator also mentioned other demands like the exclusion of Nigerian universities from Pension Management Company and non-release of NEEDS Assessment Intervention Fund.
“The review of the agreement should have been undertaken in 2012 and 2015 but that did not happen.‎
“It is unfortunate that the only language government appears to respect and listens to is that of industrial action like strike,’’ he said.
The don called on Nigerians to prevail on the federal government to honour the agreement.
