Just In!! ASUU commences review of referendum to go on strike


The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) commenced a crucial meeting Friday evening.

The meeting, taking place at the University of Abuja, will among others determine if the lecturers will proceed on a nationwide strike or not.

The final decision on the strike will be made at the end of the meeting on Sunday after the referendum conducted by the chapters must have been reviewed

ASUU had asked all its branches in the various universities to conduct referendum of members to decide whether or not a nationwide strike should be held over its demands.

The decision to conduct the referendum was part of the resolutions made at the last National Executive Council meeting of the union held in July at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, Nassarawa state.

The lecturers’ major demands from the federal government that necessitated the referendum include issues concerning the welfare of members as well as funding of universities.

The union is also demanding that government ensures the release of University of Maiduguri lecturers kidnapped by Boko Haram.
