A cloud of a fresh industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, is in the air and may rain depending on the outcome of a meeting of the aggrieved university lecturers scheduled for Monday.
The lecturers had embarked on strike that was called off eight months into it, but may return to the trenches over the payment of only half of the salary of October to them by the federal government to their disappointment.
So, they have convoked a meeting of members on Monday where decisions would be taken on their next steps, according to Daily Trust, citing an unnamed official of the lecturers’ association to have said,“I can confirm that, ASUU NEC will meet on Monday, November 7, to take a decision on strike action or not. This is an aftermath of half-salary paid by the Nigerian govt.
“Branches say they are disappointed in the FG. The union should have a decision on the same day.”
