The ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has been extended by twelve weeks.
This position was made known by the President of the Union, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke on Monday.
According to a statement issued after an emergency National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of the Association at the University of Abuja on Sunday, the ASUU president said the decision was to give the government enough time to resolve all outstanding issues with the lecturers.
“After extensive deliberations, noting the Government’s failure to live up to its responsibilities and speedily address all the issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action (MoA) within the additional eight-week roll–over strike period declared on 14th March 2022, NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for twelve weeks to give Government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.
“The roll-over strike action is with effect from 12.01 a.m. on Monday, 9th May 2022,” the ASUU President’s statement read.
