The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has resolved to embark on a one-month warning strike in a bid to forcibly get the federal authorities’s response to its demands.
The union’s decision follows a two-day assembly concerning the strike motion which began on Saturday, February 12, 2022.
A supply on the assembly held in Lagos confirmed the event to newsmen on Monday morning, noting that the warning strike is to permit the Federal Government to do the needful.
He was quoted as saying, “We simply wish to give the federal government a protracted rope hoping that it might see the necessity to keep away from a complete paralysis of educational actions within the nation’s universities. We are mother and father too and have our youngsters within the system however we can’t watch and permit the whole collapse of training within the nation.
“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.”
