BREAKING: ASUU threatens nationwide strike

0 58

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has threatened to embark on another nationwide strike to protest absence of governing councils in all federal universities among other issues.

ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, spoke at a press conference in ASUU national secretariat, Abuja.

He also noted that the dissolution of the Governing Councils was illegal as it was against the principles guiding the existing universities.

The union also faulted what it described as the nonchalant attitude of the Federal Government to matters pertaining to academics in Nigerian Federal Universities.

It also faulted the 35 per cent salary increment for professors and the 25 per cent salary increment for other academics in the university system.

The body said it saw the increment as a wage award that could be withdrawn by the government anytime it deems fit.

Details shortly…
