ASUU EXTENDS STRIKE!

ASUU extends strike by another three months.
.
.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended its ongoing strike by 12 weeks.
.
.
The decision was reached after a meeting of the union’s national executive council (NEC) on Sunday at its University of Abuja secretariat.
.
.
In a statement issued after the meeting, Emmanuel Osodeke, ASUU president, said the extension takes effect from Monday, May 9, 2022. He said the extension is aimed at giving the government more time to satisfactorily resolve the issues.

“NEC was shocked that public universities have remained closed for about three months while members of the political class were busy purchasing expression of interest and nomination forms worth several millions of Naira in preparations for 2023 elections! Those in power turned their back on our degraded universities as they shuttle between Europe and America to celebrate the graduation of their children and wards from world class universities.
