ASUU Begins Total Indefinite Strike.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has resolved to extend its ongoing six-month strike to indefinite strike action.
The indefinite industrial action begins from 12.01 a.m. on Monday, 29th August 2022. This was made known in a statement signed by the ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke, after the meeting of the National Executive Council was held in Abuja. The National Executive Council of ASUU concluded that the demands of the Union had not been satisfactorily addressed hence the declaration for a total comprehensive and indefinite strike. According to the Union, the strike is aimed at saving public universities.
“In view of the foregoing, and following extensive deliberations on Government’s response to the resolution of 14th February, 2022 so far, NEC concluded that the demands of the Union had not been satisfactorily addressed. Consequently, NEC resolved to transmute the roll-over strike to a comprehensive, total and indefinite strike action beginning from 12.01a.m. on Monday, 29th August, 2022.“
