The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on Monday announced the extension of its ongoing strike by four weeks.
ASUU has been on strike in the last 168 days in protest of the failure of government to meet certain of its demands.
The extension, was announced by the union’s President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, in a statement the association released.
It reads in part: “Following extensive deliberations and taking cognisance of the government’s past failure to abide by its own timelines in addressing issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action, the NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for four weeks to give the government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.
“The roll-over strike action is with effect from 12.01am on Monday, August 1, 2022.”
Recall that the lecturers’ union on Monday, February 14, 2022, announced the commencement of a strike over the failure of the government to meet lingering demands of the union.
