BREAKING NEWS - The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has commenced a nationwide industrial action today Monday, 5th November 2018 following the inability of the Federal Government to respond to its demands.

Specifically, the union accused the government of not implementing the Memorandum of Action signed with it, declaring that the strike would be total as all federal and state varsities would join the strike.

The union made the announcement after their National Executive Council meeting held at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State on Sunday night.

Briefing journalists after the NEC meeting, the National President of the ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi said all entreaties made to the Federal Government to honour the agreement with the union fell on deaf ears and they had no other alternative but to begin the strike action.

He said,
“Having waited patiently for action and meaningful negotiation with reasonable men using the principle of collective bargaining that ASUU at its NEC meeting of 3rd and 4th November 2018 at the FUTA,  resolved to resume the nationwide strike action it suspended in September 2017 with immediate effect.
“This strike will be total, comprehensive and indefinite. Our members shall withdraw their services until the government fully implements all outstanding issues as contained in the MOA of 2017, and concludes the renegotiation of the 2009 agreements.
“We have today been subjected to 20 years of continued re-colonization under alleged democracy in which all the ruling class has been regrouping among themselves in their various factions they called political parties.”

Ogunyemi reportedly said that the government was not interested in public universities as the children of the top politicians and rich men in the society patronize private universities at the detriment of public institutions.
