ASUU Extends Strike By 12 Weeks

Nigerian University teachers under the umbrella of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended its strike by 12 weeks.
 
National President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke confirmed this on Monday morning.

The body took the decision at an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) held at ASUU Secretariat in Abuja.
 
The emergency meeting had in attendance principal officers and branch chairmen.
 
Members of the union had embarked on a one-month strike on February 14 over the failure of the Nigerian Government to honour the various agreements reached with them.
 
Some of ASUU’s demands include the release of revitalisation funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers.
