ASUU Sends Heart Breaking Message To Members Over Duration Of Strike [Details]

Rather than getting amicably resolved soon, President, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, yesterday gave an indication that the ongoing strike may take longer time as he charged his colleagues in public universities to brace up for anticipated challenge.

Making the resolve of the union known in a “Strike Bulletin No 5” sent to all members of the union, a copy of which was obtained by New Telegraph in Ibadan, Ogunyemi enjoined ASUU members “to be on the watch and prepare for   a long drawn- out struggle to salvage the university system. Remain steadfast and resolute in the face of intimidation or antics employed by government through Vice Chancellors and Governing Councils to undermine the ongoing struggle.”

ASUU had embarked on nationwide strike over unfulfilled past agreements by government and underfunding of education.

According to the ASUU President “government is yet to change its “keep them talking” style and stance as all the meetings held so far with the Minister of Education are yet to resolve any of the demands of ASUU.”

Also speaking after their Zonal Meeting held at Ladoke Akintola University, the ASUU Chairman, University of Ibadan, Dr. Deji Omole said Ibadan zone of ASUU had been fully mobilised with its members to ensure reason for the strike was actualised. Omole noted that it was regrettable that “the Federal Government who has not put anything on the table for revitalising the comatose education sector is busy mobilising funds for re-election in 2019.”
