The President of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Emmanuel Osodeke has explained that the decision of the union to extend its ongoing strike for another 12 weeks was to enable the Federal Government address issues in the agreement it had with it in concrete terms.
NAN reports that the union had embarked on a nationwide warning strike from Feb. 14 to press home its members’ demands.
NAN recalls that the union during its last National Executive Council (NEC) meeting noted that it was disappointed that government had not treated the matters with utmost urgency they deserved and as expected of a reasonable, responsive, and well-meaning administration.
“NEC viewed government’s response so far as a continuation of the unconscionable, mindless and nonchalant attitude of the Nigerian ruling elite toward the proven path of the national development which is education.
“NEC, having taken reports on the engagement of the trustees and principal officers with the government concluded that government had failed to satisfactorily address all the issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action within the four-weeks-roll over strike period.
“NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for another 12 weeks to give government more time to address all the issues in concrete terms so that government will resume as soon as possible, ”it said. (NAN)
