ASUU To Embark On Nationwide Strike Against Non-Payment of Salary: The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), plans to embark on a nationwide strike over the failure of the government to honor its agreement signed in 2009. The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU holds crucial meeting, to take decision on nationwide strike this weekend.

The academic union disclosed that if their demands are not meant, academic activities may be stopped in various tertiary institutions across the country. However, before the meeting was scheduled this weekend, ASUU had asked all its branches in the various universities to conduct a referendum of members to decide whether or not a nationwide strike should be held over its demands.

Academic staff no longer receives their monthly salary, making it difficult for teachers to effectively and efficiently carry out their duties. Therefore, if the government fails to meet our demand we will embark on a nationwide strike soon. The final decision regarding the strike will be announced after a review of the referendum conducted by the chapters. The scheduled meeting where ASUU will take its final decision starts (Friday) and ends on Sunday (August 13) in Abuja.
