The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has disclosed that its members can go on strike anytime from now.
This was announced after the Federal Government (FG) failed to honour the promise made to the union in implementing the Memorandum of Action (MoA) both signed in December 2020.
Adelaja said the dues ran into millions of naira, and the stand of the FG is also controversial on the Integrated Personnel Payroll and Information System (IPPIS).
He was in the company of other union leaders from other universities in the zone. He said the union had given the FG a rope long enough for it to hang itself on the issue.
The coordinator added that the FG are to set up panels which is done every 5 years to see what the progress of universities is, but the reverse is the case as they are the ones who do that.
Promotion arrears is another thing that has not been done, and many of their members are yet to benefit. Only two out of their nine demands have been met, he added.
