ASUU back down on plans to suspend four month-old strike


The Academe Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has back down on plans to suspend its four months strike, leaving parents and students perplexed.

Recall that lecturers in Nigerian public Universities on February 14, 2022 declared strike over the failure by the government to implement the renegotiated 2009 agreement and deploy the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

President of the Union, Dr. Emmanuel Osedeke disclosed this while responding to inquiry by African Independent Television (AIT) on Friday.

He revealed that the decision to brief media on strike update this weekend has been rescinded.

He insisted that the unending action continues, pending when the demands of the aggrieved lecturers are meant, adding that the enforcement of ‘No work, No pay’ adopted by the government, has made matters worse.

He accused the National Information Technology Development agency, NITDA, a parastatal under the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, of deliberately frustrating the UTAS process.
