ASUU: Union Set To Embark On Fresh Strike Following FG’s Defiance.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has hinted at the possibility of embarking on a fresh strike, shutting down all public universities over the inability of the Federal Government to implement agreements the two parties entered into in December 2020, which led to the suspension of a nine-month prolonged strike.

Hence, the national leadership of the union directed its members nationwide to declare lecture-free day on Monday, February 7, in preparation for a possible showdown with the Nigerian government.

ASUU National President, Prof. Emmanuel Osedeke complained that the Federal Government ignored the implementation of some agreements the two parties entered into in 2020.

Professor Osedeke said the lecture-free day today will enable members to have urgent meetings.

He added that if the FG fails to do the needful, an indefinite strike would be inevitable.
