The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended the on-going strike by twelve weeks.

The President of the Union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke who disclosed this after an emergency National Executive Committee meeting of the association at the University of Abuja yesterday said the decision was to give the government enough time to resolve all outstanding issues with the lecturers.

Professor Osodeke ASUU also expressed dissatisfaction with the three-man panel set up by President Muhammadu Buhari in February to resolve the lingering industrial action.

Reports say the extension came days after the Federal Government said it would resume talks with the striking lecturers this week.
