Despite President Muhammadu Buhari’s intervention, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it would soon embark on an indefinite strike to press home their demands one month after it suspended a nine-month-old strike.
ASUU STRIKE: FG DECLARED STRIKE, ASUU SIMPLY OBEYED
Dr Lazarus Maigoro, Chairman of the University of Jos chapter of the Union, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Jos.
It would be recalled that the union suspended a nine-month-old industrial action in December 2020.
NAN reports that ASUU embarked on an earlier strike over the failure of the Federal Government to address all the issues raised in the 2009 agreement it entered with the union.

EARLIER; Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife branch, on Monday, commenced an indefinite strike over what they described as the refusal of the institution’s management to pay their earned academic allowance.
ASUU accused the Eyitope Ogunbodede-led management of unnecessarily delaying the payment of the allowance which they claimed had since been remitted into the university’s account by the Nigerian government since December 13, 2021.
