ASUU NEC meeting ongoing, may extend strike

Members of the National Executive Council of Academic Staff Union of Universities are currently meeting, YOMSDIRECT MEDIA has learnt.
A member of the NEC told our correspondent that the strike may be extended with the submissions given so far at the meeting.


YOMSDIRECT MEDIA had reported that ASUU had on February 14 commenced a warning strike to press home some demands.
The lecturers asked the government to implement the Memorandum of Action signed in December 2020 on funding for the revitalisation of public universities.
Other demands are Earned Academic Allowances, renegotiation of the 2009 agreement and the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution among others.


Meanwhile, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, had on Friday stated that the Federal Government and ASUU would resume negotiation this week.
