ASUU Begins Nationwide Indefinite Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has declared an indefinite strike following the expiration of its two weeks warning strike over the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System and the non-implementation of the 2009 agreement.

This is coming after the National Universities Commission ordered universities across the country to close for a month, beginning from March 23, due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

The indefinite strike was announced by the National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi at a press briefing in its National Secretariat, Abuja. According to him, the government failed to address the issues raised, hence the strike action which takes effect from March 23, 2020.

Recall that the Union had on 9th March declared a two-week warning strike which elapsed Monday 23 March.

  4. Useless and senless government close all public places no, you people are doing slow point picking for closure

  5. Closure of schools and churches or mosques attendance ratio limitations because of coronvirus occurrence is not the appropriate preventive measures. If i may ask; what happen to market population explosion rate??.Government should not imitate and adopt other countries preventive measures here.

    • That’s actually the best method to combat the spread of the virus because if people are allowed to move freely let’s take for example a university campus where all are ignorant on who has and Who doesn’t have the virus, they relate freely making body contact and if peradventure just a single student has then the virus will spread at a fast rate so let’s not think our government is copying others since it’s the best for we Nigerians.

      • You are right o but are they going to check all the students when they resume?
        If der are sending them away the government have to look for a way to test or check the students health status before entering the school if der don’t do that, I don’t see any difference there. Well is only God that will help us

  6. Is It Truth That as the meeting end kasu are officially going for strike?

    • If schools are closed. What about markets and public transportation. Government knows that this two places has the highest spreading means still they haven’t looked or even thought how to manage them. Besides Corona virus no dey show for face…

  7. Concerning The Strike
    Will Kaduna State University also go for the strike?
