Information reaching AmasNigeria confirms that another strike by ASSU is looming.
The reason for the strike according to information gathered was traced to the alleged inability of the Federal Government to fulfill their 2009 agreement.
We gathered that the process that may lead to a Nationwide strike started on Thursday
We also gathered from Daily Sun that the leadership of the ASUU has begun collation of signatures of members through referenda which would determine the type of strike (weeks, months or indefinite) that may commence few days from now if all things are equal.
AmasNigeria also gathered that a number of the union members are the major players that led to the 2013 strike which was almost a year.
The former Welfare Secretary, ASUU, Kaduna State University, Mallam Ahmad Buba implored the Federal government to respond quickly in order to avert the strike. He said the union leaders had tried everything possible to help the government, but that has not yielded expected results. Hence the need to dust the suspended strike embarked upon just few years ago.
We also were informed that universities that are not owing salaries and other allowances will also be involved in the strike. “The issue of national strike is beyond individual university and that is why the referenda. Whatever ASUU is doing is in the interests of everybody including students, parents and university staff whether in federal or state universities”. The former welfare secretary concluded
