Nigerian Universities To Remain Shut As ASUU Extends Strike Again

After a marathon meeting held over-night, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has resolved to call the bluff of the Federal Government and extend its ongoing strike.

The decision was taken after the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting concluded at ASUU’s headquarters at the University of Abuja early this Monday morning, August 29, 2022.

ASUU had declared the commencement of a strike on Monday, February 14, 2022, at the University of Lagos.

Meanwhile, Spokesperson for the Federal Ministry of Education, Ben Goong, has tole The PUNCH that the government had taken all possible steps to end the strike.

He said, “As regards the next steps, the government has already inaugurated a committee to harmonise the IPPIS, UTAS, and UP3. This will ensure that the government will pay with only one payment platform that will harmonise all the technical peculiarities.

“If you bring some demands and almost 80% have been attended to, there is no need to drag the strike anymore.

“It is unreasonable for the strike to be lingering seeing as the government has worked towards fulfilling most of the demands.”
