Following agitations and threats from the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, of embarking on strike, the union has reportedly declared a “comprehensive and total” strike.
This was reportedly declared at a press conference addressed by the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, on Monday.
The Union leader made it known that the strike, which commences on Monday, February 14, 2022, would last for an initial period of four weeks.
A source at the conference in Lagos, reportedly stated, “We just want to give the government a long rope, hoping that it would see the need to avoid a total paralysis of academic activities in the nation’s universities. We are parents too and have our children in the system but we cannot watch and allow the total collapse of education in the country.”
