The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has commenced an indefinite nationwide industrial action.
The National President of the union, Dr. Biodun Ogunyemi, announced this on Monday during a meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC) of ASUU in Abuja.
He said during the strike, there shall be no teaching, no examination and no attendance of statutory meetings of any kind in any of the union’s branches across the country.
ASUU had a nationwide consultation with members at an emergency NEC meeting held on Saturday, August 12, 2017.
The strike s as a result of the failure of the government to fully implement the 2009 FGN-ASUU Agreement and the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding.
According to Ogunyemi, related demands made by the union were yet to be addressed, which was why they resolved to embark on an indefinite strike from Sunday, August 13, 2017.
