Another Strike Looms, ASUU Warns Again

The Academic Staff Union of Universities  on Monday, said it might be compelled to embark on another strike if the Federal Government failed to implement the December 22, 2020 Memorandum of Action signed with it prior to the suspension of the last strike.

The Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Benin, Prof. Fred Esumeh, told newsmen while speaking on ‘Another Inevitable Round of Crisis in Nigerian Universities.’

Esumeh who did not disclose when the strike would commence, said they awaited the decision of the national body to give the directive.

Recall that in March 2020, ASUU embarked on a strike action  following its disagreement with the FG over the funding of the universities and ineffectiveness and discrepancies around  the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System and others.

ASUU, however, developed the University Transparency and Accountability Solution to replace IPPIS and had several meetings with the Ministries of Finance, Education, Labour and Employment, and the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation before it was approved but yet to be implemented.
