ASUU hints at another lengthy strike action
There is news about the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
ASUU has stated that they are ready to down tools once more and embark on lengthy strike action.
The federal government is yet to implement an agreement it reached with ASUU in 2020 according to the union.
ASUU has warned university lecturers will close campus halls and classrooms again if, by Tuesday, August 31, the federal government refuses to move a muscle.
ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, told Punch that, “The government has refused to reach out to us. Government officials have stopped talking. In fact, they don’t take our calls again. Nigerians should tell the government to do what they agreed to do.
“We signed an agreement and even in May, we reached a final agreement; this is August and nothing has been implemented.
“Does it make any sense? We are giving them till the end of August and after that, we start the procedures.”
