ASUU Reveals Why Strike Has Not Been Called Off

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU last Thursday disclosed that the strike action by the union is still ongoing because the Federal Government had failed to make fresh offer on funding for the revitalisation of the nation’s public universities and address the issue of renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU Agreement in its new offer made to the union last Monday.

This was contained in a Strike Bulletin  signed by the ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, and sent to branches of the union.

Ogunyemi mentioned that though the Federal Government had improved its earlier offers, there were still critical unresolved issues.

The union boss asked the public to disregard the misinformation by agents of the Government that the ASUU strike is political.

He asked members to remain committed to the struggle to revitalise the education system.

Recall that the union had earlier stated that for the strike to be called off one of the primary things the Government must do is to release N50 Billion for the revitalisation of universities.

    What I don’t understand is why the federal government is still holding back on granting the request of asuu, for crying out loud what’s there in giving out the 50 billion asuu is requesting for?? They have tried to reduce the money from 220 billion to 70 billion in total, why then is federal government still delaying?? I just don’t understand Nigeria at all
