ASUU Extends Strike By 12 Weeks

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has rolled over its ongoing strike for another 12 weeks.

A statement signed by ASUU president, Emmanuel Osodeke, said this was to give the government enough time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.

It also stated that the roll-over strike was effective from 12.00am, May 9th, 2021.

ASUU said it took this decision after its National Executive Council meeting which started on Sunday night at the Festus Iyayi National Secretariat, University of Abuja.

It added that NEC noted with serious disappointment that the three-man Committee set up by President Muhammadu Buhari on 1st February 2022 to resolve the lingering issues between ASUU and Government had not called a single meeting to date.
