ASUU to begin strike on October 2. Union reveals
Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU has planned a warning strike from October 2nd. This announcement was made to the general public in a statement made in the Abuja chapter of the Union.
The statement reads:
“We have tried to dialogue with the Federal Government but they have been playing games with us; we will start with a warning strike to show them we are not jokers. ASUU has being trying to get the attention of the Federal Government to intervene in the academic system of universities across Nigeria but it has all been abortive.
Consequently, ASUU will give a warning strike which will start on Oct. 2nd. The strike will last for one week, and if they do not give us listening ears, we will start the indefinite strike in November,”
The battle between ASUU and Federal Government have been ongoing for years with both party failing to resolve the issues once and for all. The Union have accused the FG of not implementing the agreement signed by the Government on 2009.
