ASUU Extends Strike By 12 Weeks

| The Daily Crucible | Monday May 9, 2022

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended the ongoing strike by twelve weeks, the president of the union, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke said on Monday, citing the need to give the Federal Government ample time to resolve all outstanding issues as reason for the extension.

In a statement he issued after an emergency National Executive Committee meeting of the association at the University of Abuja on Sunday, the ASUU president said the roll-over strike action takes effect from 12.01 a.m. on Monday, 9th May 2022.

“After extensive deliberations, noting the Government’s failure to live up to its responsibilities and speedily address all the issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action (MoA) within the additional eight-week roll–over strike period declared on 14th March 2022, NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for twelve weeks to give Government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues. 

“The roll-over strike action is with effect from 12.01 a.m. on Monday, 9th May 2022," the ASUU president’s statement read.
