ASUU Begins Nation wide Strike as organised labour shun meeting FG


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has ordered its members across the country to commence an indefinite industrial action.

This followed a meeting of leaders of the union on Sunday at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, the Ondo State capital.

The National President of ASUU, Professor Abiodun Ogunyemi, told reporters that the union took the decision due to the poor funding of universities in the country.

He consequently directed all members of the union across various universities to withdraw their services, stressing that the strike would be total and indefinite.

Also in a related development, the organised labour Sunday night shunned meeting organised by the Federal Government to resolve the impasse on the new minimum wage.  Non of the labour leaders attended the meeting at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

One of the key officers of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, revealed that the meeting was irrelevant as the only meeting they would attend was the one scheduled today for the signing of the report of the Tripartite Committee.
