We are still on strike – ASUU


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said the ongoing strike is still on, ahead of a crucial meeting with the federal government, today, Monday.

ASUU’s national president, Biodun Ogunyemi, stated said this in an interview with newsmen on Sunday in Lagos.

“We are going into another round of meeting with representatives of the Federal government tomorrow, Sept. 18,” Ogunyemi said.

“We are still on strike. However, we are hoping that we will sort out all the grey areas and hope, too, that the Federal government will show sincerity and commitment on their own part.

“We have done our own part and we expect them too to do their own with all sincerity.

“Should both sides settle whatever issues that have been brought before the house, we will consider putting the crisis behind us and move forward.

“So, we are indeed looking forward to a fruitful deliberation tomorrow in order to move forward, for the benefit of all the stakeholders and the nation at large,” he added.

Lecturers in the nation’s universities had on August 13, embarked on what they described as a comprehensive, total and indefinite strike.

The lecturers are protesting against the non-implementation of 2013 memorandum of understanding (MoU), as well as the 2009 agreement they entered into with the federal government.
