The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has this morning extended the industrial strike action they began in March 14th, 2022. This according to the Union is necessitated by the failure of the Federal Government to meet their demands.
"ASUU, early Monday morning extended the ongoing strike by 12 weeks. The decision was taken at an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) held at ASUU Secretariat in Abuja.
The emergency meeting, which had in attendance principal officers and branch chairmen, started on Sunday and ended early Monday morning.
The two month rollover strike declared in March 14, 2022 by ASUU ended today, May 9th. 2022., thus, the Union felt the need to extend it by 12 weeks after initial agitation for indefinite strike because of failure to address the issues in contention."
