The Academic Staff Union of Universities
(ASUU) has threatened to embark on a
nationwide strike if the Federal
Government refuses to implement the
This was disclosed by the ASUU Lagos Zone Coordinator,
Prof. Olusoji Sowande.
According to him the union have decided on to this path
since all efforts to get the federal government to implement
the agreement has proved abortive.
He mentioned that embarking on a strike action is not a
favorable choice as it is the students and lecturers that bear
the brunt of it more, but it seems that is the only language
that the Nigerian government seems to respect and listen to.
He recalled a meeting the union had with the Minister of
Education, Malam Adamu Adamu over the issue during
which the minister promised that the issue will be resolved
within 2 weeks but up till now nothing has been done.
He urged well meaning Nigerians and stake holders to
prevail on the Government to implement the agreement to
avoid the impending crisis that is about to bedevil the
nation's university system.
