‘After Fruitless Talks With FG’, ASUU Declares Indefinite Strike

ASUU, the academic staff union at universities, has announced an ongoing strike.

This was confirmed in a statement issued by Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, president of ASUU.

The federal government engaged ASUU in unproductive and never-ending negotiations without a showing of the utmost integrity, he said, adding that NEC had noted with dismay that the union had encountered a lot of dishonesty at the highest level in the previous five and a half years.

“In view of the foregoing, and following extensive deliberations on government’s response to the resolution of 14th February 2022, so far, NEC concluded that the demands of the union had not been satisfactorily addressed.

“Consequently, NEC resolved to transmute the roll-over strike to a comprehensive, total, and indefinite strike action beginning from 12.01am Monday 29th August 2022,” the statement read in part.

It added that: “NEC acknowledges with appreciation past and current efforts by eminent Nigerians and groups to mediate in the lingering crisis. Our union remains open to reasonable engagements as we have always done.”

ASUU began its ongoing strike on February 14, 2022, after the Federal Government refused to meet some of its demands.
