Nigeria: ASUU begins nationwide strike
Following the failure of the Federal Government to fulfil some of the agreements it made with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) as far back as 2009, the leadership of the union on Monday declared a nationwide strike to press home its demand.
The strike was declared at a press conference addressed by the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, on Monday.
Members of the union’s National Executive Council had held marathon meetings since Saturday at the University of Lagos titled, ‘NEC for NEC.’
ASUU had sensitised and mobilised lecturers and students across all universities on the reason the union might likely go on strike.
