ASUU Extends Six-Month-Old Strike Indefinitely

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) today extended its six month old strike indefinitely until the Federal Government meets its demands.

A member of the union, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the development to newsmen following a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the striking varsity teachers at the University of Abuja.

He said the union extended the industrial action after reviewing progress reports on on-going negotiations with the federal government in the last four weeks when ASUU rolled over the strike.

Last week, the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu said the federal government had addressed most of the union’s demands including the release of Fifty Billion Naira for the payment of earned allowances for Academic and Non-Academic Staff of Universities.
