JUST IN: ASUU Declares Nationwide Strike Immediately

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday declared a nationwide strike and ordered all its members to vacate the classrooms immediately.

The union at a news conference said the strike was to compel the federal government to meet its demands.

ASUU’s President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said the industrial action would last for an initial period of four weeks.

He said the union did not want the students to be at home and would not want the academic calendar disrupted, but lamented that the demands of the union was not yet met by the government.

According to him, the government should call the Vice-Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede, to order over the unpaid Earned Academic Allowances of its members in the university.

He said ASUU had an agreed template with the federal government, but that Ogunbodede refused to pay, stressing that failure to pay using that template is a misappropriation.
