On Monday, The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) revealed its plans to embark on fresh industrial action on Tuesday following the failure of the Federal Government to implement an agreement signed with the union.
ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke disclosed this in an interview with The PUNCH on Sunday.
He revealed that the Federal Government had failed to implement the agreement reached with the union.
“The government has refused to reach out to us. Government officials have stopped. In fact, they don’t take our calls again. Nigerians should tell the government to do what they agreed to do.
“We signed an agreement and even in May, we reached a final agreement; this is August and nothing has been implemented. Does it make any sense? We are giving them till the end of August and after that, we start the procedures.” He stated.
Professor Osodeke added that due to government’s silence over their demands, the union would not hesitate to embark on a fresh strike to protest government’s failure.
