A meeting of the National Executive Committee of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) was held at University of Abuja on Sunday (yesterday) to decide whether to declare on an indefinite strike as it’s one warning strike ends today.
” The ASUU strike is now being considered to be rolled-over for another 8 weeks”
However, another high ranking source in the NEC told our correspondent that the union would have no choice but to go on full blown strike as the government had failed to do anything tangible to meet its demands.
It was gathered that the Federal Ministry of Education has said it will not enter into agreements with the Academic Staff Union of Universities under duress.
The ministry called on ASUU to call off its strike “so that we will not have gunpoint negotiations and make promises that we will not be able to fulfil.”
