ASUU ends warning strike, threatens next would be indefinite
As the one-week long nationwide warning strike embarked upon by Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) ends on Tuesday, the lecturers are threatening to go on an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.
This decision was made known to the press by the ASUU Chairman of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) Chapter, Dr. Ifeanyi Abada.
He said that the chapter complied fully with the warning strike directive.
“The National Executive Committee (NEC) made efforts to resolve this issue with the government but government remained unyielding. The strike compliance in UNN is total, no lectures, no examinations, no departmental and faculty meetings, as members will not participate.
“UNN chapter will not renege on the directive of the national body until government addresses all the issues raised,” he said.
According to Abada, among the demands of ASUU is that universities be exempted from the Treasury Single Account (TSA) policy.
He noted that ASUU was also demanding Federal Government implementation of an agreement it entered into with ASUU in 2009.
