ASUU Extends Warning Strike For 8 More Weeks


By Ikugbadi Oluwasegun

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended its warning strike for another two months. ASUU made the decision to extend the strike at the union’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Abuja last night, on Sunday, March 13, 2022.

ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke disclosed this in a statement released on Monday, March 14, 2022 at the end of the NEC meeting of ASUU which held at its National Secretariat located at the University of Abuja.

“NEC, having taken reports on the engagements of the Trustees and Principal Officers with the Government, concluded that Government had failed to satisfactorily address all the issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action (MoA) within the four-week roll-over strike period and resolved that the strike be rolled over for another eight (8) weeks to give Government more time to address all the issues in concrete terms so that our students will resume as soon as possible,” the statement affirmed.

“The roll-over strike shall commence by 12.01am on Monday, March 14, 2022.”

Recall that ASUU had on February 14, declared a warning strike following the failure of the Federal Government of Nigeria to deploy the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) and other demands.

Despite series of meetings with the Federal Government team chaired by Minister of Labour and Employment, Mr. Chris Ngige, both sides have failed to reach an agreement.
