Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU yesterday Monday commenced what they tagged the “general termless strike” because the federal government fragrantly ignored its requirementsand therefore blamed the FG for not implementing the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the parties.


ASUU further declared that the strike will be general because all federal and state universities will accede to the strike. The union announced the strike update after their 2018 NEC session that took place at the Federal University of Technology Akure (Ondo State) on the 4th of November at night. According to a source, the ASSU strike was an action against the insufficient financing of the universities in Nigeria and intention to increase students' fees as well as educational bank introduction and inability of students to repay a loan for study. At the meeting with mass media after the NEC session, ASUU National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi informed that all the requests to the government dealing with their agreements were disregarded. In this case, the ASUU had no other choice than going on strike.
The ASUU National President announced that the strike would be general, pervasive, and termless until the authorities fulfill the MoA of 2017 and complete the 2009 agreements' revision, stressing that ASUU underwent to twenty years of recolonization with supposed democracy where all the representatives of leading class switched places in their different political groups. Professor Biodun Ogunyemi said that the authorities had no incentives for public universities. According to him, the children of the high ranking politicians and wealthy men protect private universities to the prejudice of public institutions. It's an unpleasant situation.
