Nigerian university lecturers announce strike

    The Academic Staff Union of Universities has declared a “comprehensive and total” strike.

    The strike was declared at a press conference addressed by the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, on Monday.

    He said the strike, which takes effect from Monday, February 14, 2022, would last for an initial period of four weeks.

    According to him, the union tried to avoid the strike but the Federal Government was unresponsive to the union’s demands.

    The ASUU chairman also said ASUU NEC faulted the creation of new universities.

    He said, “NEC resolved to embark on the four-week roll-over total and comprehensive strike as the government has failed to implement the Memorandum of Action it signed with the ASUU in December 2020.
