Just In: ASUU set to embark on a 3 months Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities is set to embark on a 3 months strike. According to a recent tweet on Twitter of the official twitter handle of ASUU, the tweeted that they are “Thinking of going on another 3 months strike action..”

Before the Presidential and National Assembly elections, ASUU was on an indefinite strike since last year November. They called off the strike a few days to the elections.

From all indications, ASUU called off the strike because the Federal Government (FG) had a memorandum of understanding.

From the Federal Ministry of Labour, they tweeted on Twitter the details of the memorandum of understanding FG had with ASUU

“Detail of agreement reached with ASUU 1. FG is committed to the implementation of the FGN-ASUU 2013 (MoU) and in consonance with this commitment; Government will be releasing the sum of 25bn only in the period April/May 2019, as a sign of good faith”.

From ASUU recent tweets, it appears that FG has not kept to the terms of the memorandum of understanding which may be the reason the Union is considering on embarking on yet another strike.
