‘The Strike Will Continue’ – ASUU

It is no news that University teachers under the auspices of the Academic Staff Union of Universities embarked on a nationwide industrial action on July 1, 2013. The new development is that ASUU has said the strike will not be called off until the Federal Government respected the signed pact.

Speaking at a press briefing, the Ibadan Zonal Coordinator of ASUU, Dr. Adesola Nassir,
explained that though the union met with the government’s representatives, including the members of the Senate Committee on Education last Monday, the meeting ended in a deadlock.


He said, “This is because the Federal Government is still not being sincere to address the issues at stake.

“The strike will remain for as long as it takes the Federal Government to be faithful to the implementation of the 2009 agreement and its renegotiation as contained in the Memorandum of Understanding reached by both parties in January last year.”

He explained that the FG’s response to the action since it started had shown that it was not ready to address the challenges facing the nation’s university system.
