ASUU meets next week over planned strike, laments Federal Government’s inactions

The Academic Staff Union of Universities says it’s National Executive Council would meet next week to weigh its options on whether to embark on strike or not, following the failure of the Federal Government to meet some of its demands.

The union’s National President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this in an interview in Abuja.

Recall that ASUU had issued an ultimatum to the Federal Government and accused the government of deliberately ignoring its demands..

Some of ASUU’s demands include the payment of salary arrears of its members, payment of revitalization funds of universities, and the development of a new payment platform known as the UTAS platform.

The Federal Government had, however, insisted that it was working hard on making sure that the association’s demands were met.

Governor Emmanuel also thanked the forebears of the state who worked tirelessly for the creation of the state as well as past leaders who have contributed their quota to the development of the state.

But, Osodeke said ASUU is hoping something is done before next week, as when it meets, the union will weigh its options and a decision will be taken.
