ASUU Sets For Indefinite Strike As Warning Yields No Result 

The one-week nationwide warning strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) ends today, November 22, but the lecturers are threatening to go on an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.

The union had a week ago embarked on a week-long warning strike to press home some of the agreements reached with the federal government years ago.

This was disclosed on Tuesday by the Chairman of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, chapter of the union, Dr. Ifeanyi Abada, in Nsukka, Enugu State.

According to him, “ASUU was left with no option than to proceed on the one-week warning strike; failure to meet our demands, we will go on an indefinite strike.

“The National Executive Committee made efforts to resolve this issue with the government but government remained unyielding.

“The strike compliance in UNN is total, no lectures, no examinations, no departmental and faculty meetings, as members will not participate.

“UNN chapter will not renege on the directive of the national body until government addresses all the issues raised.
