This online news platform understands that the strike action was declared at a press conference addressed by the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, on Monday.’
The strike which commences on Monday, February 14, 2022, would last for an initial period of four weeks.
Members of the union’s National Executive Council had held marathon meetings since Saturday at the University of Lagos titled, ‘NEC for NEC.’
ASUU had sensitised and mobilised lecturers and students across all universities on the reason the union might likely go on strike.
The union had expressed grievances over the failure of the Federal Government to fulfil some of the agreements it made as far back as 2009.
NewsOnline recalls that ASUU had on November 15, 2021, given the federal government a three-week ultimatum over the failure to meet the demands.
