The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended its ongoing strike again.
The decision was taken after the National Executive Council meeting at the union’s headquarters at the University of Abuja on Monday morning, August 29.
The ASUU strike began on February 14, 2022, and was initially to last for 4 weeks. However, on March 14, exactly one month after, ASUU extended its ongoing industrial action by another two months to afford the government more time to address all of its demands.
The strike has now entered its 196th day.
The union is on strike over the inability of the Federal Government to implement previous agreements both parties entered into.
The lecturers’ agitations include funding for the revitalization of public universities, earned academic allowances, University Transparency Accountability Solution, promotion arrears and others.
