ASUU has my 100 percent support, Deji Adeyanju advocates for prolonged strike



Rights activist and chairman of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, has reiterated his support for the prolonged strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Adeyanju, in a tweet via his Twitter page on Monday, urged ASUU to continue their strike until all their demands are met by the federal government.

The activist also urged the university lecturers to resist any form of harassment by the government.

ASUU has my 100% support to continue the strike. They should resist government harassment and tyranny. If our public higher education system worked, many of us would not have to pay millions to private universities, nor would the children of politicians go abroad. Aluta Continua!”

Vanguard recalls that the ASUU strike, which began on Monday, February 14, 2022, has been ongoing for almost seven months.

Meanwhile, the ASUU National Executive Council is expected to meet on Sunday, August 28, 2022, to make a decision on whether to suspend or continue the strike.

It was learnt that the meeting of the National Executive Council of the union will be held at the national headquarters at the University of Abuja.

Our correspondent learned that the council will make a decision based on the reports of the various ASUU state congresses.

The union’s demands range from the renegotiation of the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, the release of revitalization funds for universities, the implementation of the transparency system for the payment of salaries and allowances for university lecturers, the release of earned allowances, and the release of the white paper report of the visitation bodies for universities.
