OAU ASUU begins indefinite strike

Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, on Monday, commenced an indefinite strike over what they described as the refusal of the institution’s management to pay their earned academic allowance.

They accused the Eyitope Ogunbodede-led management of unnecessarily delaying the payment of the allowance which they claimed had since been remitted into the university’s account by the Nigerian government since December 13, 2021.

The union took the decision at an emergency congress, which was held at the First Bank Lecture Hall on Monday morning.

But the university management, which had earlier described the strike threat issued by the union as a “family affair,” said it is still watching the events as they unfold before taking the next step.
