ASUU Wants To Embark On Another Strike

The Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) is ready to down their tools again and embark on another strike. ASUU alleges that federal government officials no longer pick their calls.

The union said the federal government is yet to do anything to the agreement they had way back in 2020.

According to the union, if by Tuesday, August 31, the federal government refuses to move a muscle, University lecturers will close campus and classrooms again.

The last strike by ASUU which is still disrupting academic calendars in the nations institution's lasted for almost a year and this greatly affected the academic lives of Nigerian students in tertiary institutions. But the agreement reached before the strike was suspended is yet to be implemented by the federal government.

According to ASUU's president, Professor Emmanjel Osodeke, "The government has refused to reach out to us. Government officials have stopped talking. In fact, they don't take our calls again. Nigerians should tell the government to do what they agreed to do"

ASUU and the federal government have bickered over a payment platform, earned allowances and conducive environment for learning.
