ASUU strike continues after negotiations with FG failed (Nov, 2018)

ASUU strike continues indefinitely as the meeting between the federal government and the union ended in deadlock.

Students, staff and the university communities of all the government owned universities in Nigeria are hereby informed that the industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU continues after the union met with the Federal Government yesterday.

According to ASUU National President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi,

“No date has been fixed for next week but we will communicate the date to you tomorrow (Friday). The union was forced to go on strike because our plea for the implementation of the 2017 Memorandum of Action fell on deaf ears.”

“Our meeting with the Minister of Education (Adamu Adamu) in May and September 2018 to remind him of the Federal Government’s promises to implement the agreement yielded no result.”

However, the meeting was adjourned till next week, but until then, the strike remains intact.
