ASUU To Embark On Indefinite Nationwide Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it is
prepared to embark on an indefinite nationwide industrial action.
The final decision to commence the nationwide strike would
be reached at a meeting of the union on Monday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
However, the decision was disclosed in a statement signed on
August 12 by the ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi, after a series of discussions
with the government.
Ogunyemi explained that the government has failed to fully
implement the 2009 FGN-ASUU Agreement and the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding.
He added that related demands made by the union have not
been addressed, which is why they have resolved to embark on a “total,
comprehensive and indefinite strike” from Sunday, August 13, 2017.
