Confirmed ASUU embarks on indefinite strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)
has announced the commencement of an indefinite
nationwide strike with immediate effect.
The decision was announced at the end of an
emergency meeting on Sunday night.
This came just as the Nigeria Labour Congress
(NLC) is also preparing to commence a nationwide
strike on Tuesday, October 6th, 2018 over a
disagreement between the organised labour union
and the governments on the N30,000 minimum
wage.
Briefing newsmen after the closed-door meeting,
ASUU president, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, said
the strike will be total and with immediate effect.
He listed the reasons for their action to include:
Failure on the side of the government to honour
the Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, signed
between the union and the federal government in
2017.
He also mentioned that renegotiation with ASUU
which the government intentionally ignored with
impunity was part of the reasons for the strike.
Professor Ogunyemi, therefore, directed all the
state chapters to ensure full compliance until their
demands are met.
