One Year After: Another ASUU Strike?

7 years ago

The Aca­demic Staff Union of Universi­ties (ASUU) may be going on another very long strike just a year after they called off their 5-month long strike, following the Federal Government inability to honour the agreement it reached with the lecturers during the last strike.

Speaking yesterday at a press briefing in remembrance of the killing of former ASUU leader, Professor Festus Iyayi by the convoy of Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Wada, ASUU lamented the failure of the Federal Government to fulfill its promises.

The union disclosed that no government-owned university had received a dime from the N200 billion the government said it had set aside for the revitalization of university education in the current year.

Chairman, Nnamdi Azikiwe University branch of ASUU, Comrade Dennis Aribidor said: “It seems Iyayi’s death opened the pandora box that suggests that ASUU’s relationship with government might seem irreconcilably hostile. While he fought for a just cause, ASUU is presently skeptical that he died in vain especially since the conten­tion over honouring the ASUU-FG 2009 agreement, which cut his life short, is still far-fetched. This position is based on some hard truths.”
