ASUU prolongs strike again

After a series of heated discussions, the Academic Staff Union of Universities has decided to extend its ongoing strike.

The decision was taken after the National Executive Council meeting on Monday morning at the union’s headquarters at the University of Abuja.

ASUU had announced the commencement of a strike at the University of Lagos on Monday, 14 February 2022.

Meanwhile, the spokesperson of the Federal Ministry of Education, Ben Goong, in an interview, said the government had taken all possible steps to end the strike.

He said, “As for the next steps, the government has already set up a committee to harmonise IPPIS, UTAS and UP3. This will ensure that the government pays with only one payment platform that harmonises all the technicalities.

“When you put in some demands and almost 80% of them are met, there is no longer any reason to drag out the strike.

“It is unreasonable that the strike is still going on because the government has been working towards meeting most of the demands.”
