Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities are set to embark on another industrial strike action

The announcement was made by the national president of the union, Emmanuel Oshodeke, on Monday, February 7, Oshodeke said the union has already begun a mobilisation exercise to enlighten students and lecturers of institutions of ASUU’s decision

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday, February 7, accused the federal government of insincerity in their agreement to implement the memorandum of action both parties signed in 2021. According to Sahara Reporters, the national president of ASUU, Emmanuel Oshodeke, said the union would embark on another strike if the government fails to implement the agreement.

While noting that the union does not trust the Federal Government, Oshodeke said ASUU had embarked on a mobilisation exercise across universities in the country with a view to prepare students for the planned strike action

Stating that the mobilisation exercise commenced in the past two weeks, Oshodeke said each branch of the union would pick a day for their participation.

He added that after the exercise, findings and reports would be collated and the press addressed before the National Executive Council of the union can take a final decision on the matter. The Punch also reported that the chairman of Kwara state University chapter of ASUU, Salau Sheu said the FG is doing everything possible to avoid its responsibilities

Sheu said: “It is wrong for President Muhammadu Buhari to assign two ministers to oversee the implementation of the Memorandum of Action signed last year with ASUU. “First, the assigned ministers are not part of the agreement. Only the ministers of Finance and Education were part of the agreement.”
