Breaking: ASUU reveals when strike would be called off

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) had two weeks ago declared an indefinite strike over failure of the federal government to fulfill the content of the Memorandum of Action it signed with the union in 2017.
But, ASUU Chairman, University of Ibadan, Dr. Deji Omole while addressing journalists shortly after a congress of the union on Thursday in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, said ASUU members will not allow the ruling elite to destroy the heritage of the poor, which is qualitative education.
He maintained that the strike was borne out of genuine and patriotic commitment to ensure a better future for children of the masses and that of Nigeria.
He, therefore, dismissed the allegation being bandied by the government that the strike was political.
Omole said, “How can our strike be political when there are matters that you as government signed into and you failed to fulfill your promises?
“To us, it is the Federal government that is being political with the truth by becoming untrustworthy. How can the President and his Vice be asking Nigerian universities to become one of the leading universities of the world without making the same commitments responsive and responsible governments in the world are making to education?
“Our leadership has shown consistent disrespect for agreements and this is why they can no longer be trusted by our union.”

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has flagged off rumours of the strike being called off and assured the general public that the ongoing strike by the union will continue until the federal government resolves all the issues in contention.
