ASUU begins indefinite nationwide strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has commenced an indefinite nationwide strike.

The union said the strike is to protest the poor funding of Nigerian universities.

Led by its National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU declared the strike at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held at the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) in Ondo State.

All academic staff of universities were directed to withdraw their services immediately.

ASUU specifically cited the "Failure on the part of the government to honour the memorandum of action signed between the union and the federal government in 2017” and “Renegotiation with ASUU which the government intentionally ignored with impunity” as its reasons for embarking on the strike.
