ASUU threatens to extend strike indefinitely, says FG is not serious

The University’s Academic Staff Union (ASUU) has threatened to extend the ongoing strike indefinitely.

The union said this at its ongoing meeting in Abuja.

The union accused the federal government of being “insincere” and promised to inform Nigerians about the outcome of its meeting.

ASUU announced on Monday, February 14, 2022, a four-week total and comprehensive warning strike following the inability of the union and the Federal Government to reach common ground on the demands of university lecturers.

Some of ASUU’s demands include the release of university revival funds, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN / ASUU agreement, release of earned grants for university lecturers, and the deployment of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of salaries and grants of university lecturers.

After the expiration of the initial four weeks of the warning strike, the union went on to declare another eight weeks, saying it was giving the government more time to look after its needs.
