ASUU ready to embark on strike, asks Nigerians to blame Govt

Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have threatened to embark on another industrial action following a three-week ultimatum issued by the union last month.

They, however, called on well-meaning Nigerians to prevail on the Federal Government to honour the agreement reached with the union.The lecturers made the call on Friday at separate briefings held in the northern and southern parts of the country where they said the government’s action has left them with no other option than to withdraw their services.

At the end of a meeting of the Ibadan Zone of ASUU held at the University of Ilorin, the zonal coordinator, Professor Oyebamiji Oyegoke, said the union has been pushed to the wall over the non-implementation of the Memorandum ofAction (MoA) reached with the government in 2020.

He explained that the union was planning another strike because of the failure to fully implement the MoA.
