The National Executive Council NEC of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has voted to embark on a one month warning strike to get its demand from the government.
According to vanguard, a source said the strike is so that Federal Government will do the needful and the union would go on an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.
“We just want to give the government a long rope hoping that it would see the need to avoid a total paralysis of academic activities in the nation’s universities. We are parents too and have our children in the system but we cannot watch and allow the total collapse of education in the country.
Our agitation is in the interest of all and if the system is made better, we will all enjoy it. Prominent personalities in the country have waded into the matter but the government seems recalcitrant. Our National President would explain more when he briefs the press later today.”
