ASUU declares one-month warning strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has resolved to go on a one-month warning strike to urge the Federal Government on its demands.

At its National Executive Council meeting, held at the University of Lagos, the union was debating whether to go on strike again.

The union had previously stated that its decision on the strike action will be revealed at the conclusion of its two-day meeting, which began on Saturday, February 12, 2022.

At the end of the meeting in the early hours of Monday, February 14, 2022, the union announced another round of industrial action to warn the government to do the needful.

A member of the union, who spoke to Vanguard said, “We just want to give the government a long rope hoping that it would see the need to avoid a total paralysis of academic activities in the nation’s universities. We are parents too and have our children in the system but we cannot watch and allow the total collapse of education in the country.

“Our agitation is in the interest of all and if the system is made better, we will all enjoy it. Prominent personalities in the country have waded into the matter but the government seems recalcitrant. Our National President would explain more when he briefs the press later today.”
