ASUU extends strike by 4 weeks to give the Federal Government more time to meet its demands
The National Executive Council of the Academic Staff of Union of Universities has failed to suspend the ongoing strike action, which has led to a shutdown of academic activities in public universities across the country.
The NEC would meet on August 1, 2022.
Sources within the NEC confirmed to our correspondent that the meeting, which ended in the early hours of Monday morning (August 1, 2022), sought to review the activities and progress recorded so far.
Our correspondent also learned that the union was yet to hear from the minister of education, Adamu Adamu, despite the promises made to the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), that the strike would be resolved.
The national president of ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, could not be reached for further comments at the time of filing this report.
The PUNCH reports that the strike by the union entered its day 167 today (Monday).
ASUU has vowed not to suspend its strike if all its demands remained unmet.
