The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has resolved to embark on a one-month warning strike in order to get their demands met by the Federal Government.
The union made the resolution after a two-day meeting regarding the strike action which started on Saturday, February 12, 2022. A source at the meeting held in Lagos confirmed the development to newsmen on Monday morning, noting that the warning strike is to allow the Federal Government to do the needful.
He was quoted as saying: “We just want to give the government a long rope hoping that it would see the need to avoid a total paralysis of academic activities in the nation’s universities. We are parents too and have our children in the system but we cannot watch and allow the total collapse of education in the country.
“Our agitation is in the interest of all and if the system is made better, we will all enjoy it. Prominent personalities in the country have waded into the matter but the government seems recalcitrant. Our National President would explain more when he briefs the press later today.”
