The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has again resolved to continue its nationwide strike for another 12 weeks.
In a communiqué issued at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Sunday, the union stated that: “After extensive deliberations, noting federal government’s failure to live up to its responsibilities and speedily address the issues raised in the 2020 FG-ASUU Memoradum of Action, within the additional eight week roll-over strike period declared on March 14, 2022, NEC resolved that the strike rolled-over for 12 weeks to give government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.”
The communiqué, signed by ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said: “The roll-over strike is with effect from 12.01am on Monday, May 9, 2022.”
