ASUU Threatens To Extend Strike Indefinitely, Says Nigerian Government Not Serious

The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has threatened to extend the ongoing strike indefinitely.

The union said this at its ongoing meeting in Abuja.

Accusing the Federal Government of being unserious, the union promised to intimate Nigerians on the outcome of its meeting.

ASUU had on Monday, February 14, 2022, announced a four-week total and comprehensive warning strike following the inability of the union and the Federal Government to reach common ground on the demands of university lecturers.

Some of ASUU’s demands include the release of revitalization funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers.

Following the expiration of the initial four weeks of the warning strike, the union had gone ahead to declare another eight weeks saying that it was giving the government more time to attend to its needs.
