The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has rolled over its ongoing warning strike for another one month with effect from midnight Monday August 1, 2022 (today).
A statement signed by ASUU National President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, explained that the union took the decision to give government enough time to satisfactorily resolve all outstanding issues.
ASUU said it took the decision after its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting which started on Sunday night at the Comrade Festus Iyayi National Secretariat, University of Abuja (UNIABUJA).
The statement read, “After extensive deliberations, noting Government’s failure to live up to its responsibilities and speedily address all the issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action (MoA) within the additional eight-week roll–over strike period declared on 14th March 2022, NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for four weeks to give Government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.
“The roll-over strike action is with effect from 12.01 a.m. on Monday, 1st of August 2022.”
