ASUU issues 3-week strike ultimatum to FG

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has issued a three-week ultimatum to the Federal Government to address all issues in the December 2020 Agreement.

The new development is coming after several threats of strike action had been issued by the leadership of ASUU in the past few months over the allegations of the non-implementation of their agreement with the federal government in December 2020.

This was made known by the ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, while addressing journalists on Monday, November 15, 2021, in Abuja.

The ultimatum given by ASUU is part of the resolution reached at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the Union held in Abuja.

According to Channels, Osodeke warned that the Union might be compelled to embark on another nationwide strike should the government fail to implement the Memorandum of Action signed with ASUU prior to the suspension of the last industrial action.

The ASUU President revealed that the federal government is yet to address all the issues, including those of unpaid academic earned allowances and the universities revitalisation fund almost one year after an agreement was reached.
