The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has extended the delayed industrial action embarked upon over five months ago by an additional four weeks.
Recall that the striking lecturers shut down public universities on February 14, 2022, following the inability of the Federal Government to carry out a Memorandum of Action (MoA) entered by the two parties in 2020.
National President, ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke in a statement on Monday, said the decision to additionally extend the strike was to empower the FG sufficiently resolve every one of the outstanding issues raised.
The development was sequel to an emergency meeting of the National Executive Council of the union held at the Comrade Festus Iyayi National Secretariat, University of Abuja, Abuja, on Sunday.
The statement reads in part, “Following extensive deliberations and taking cognisance of Government’s past failures to abide by its own timelines in addressing issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action (MoA), NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for four weeks to give Government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.
“The role-over strike action is with effect from 12.01am on Monday, 1st August 2022”.
