The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has commenced indefinite strike nationwide today, national president of ASUU, Dr Nasir Isa Fagge has said.
He made this declaration, Monday, at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) after their NEC meeting held at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State.
Speaking to news men, he said: “We are embarking on indefinite strike nation wide because the Federal Government reneged in the Memorandum of Understanding MoU signed with ASUU in 2009 to pay lecturers their earn allowance.”
According to Fagge, the Federal Government, in 2009 made a law to pay each lecturers N12,500 per month as earn allowance which it never did since 2009.
Lecturers at the University of Port Harcourt have confirmed this development stating that MEMOs and SMS have gone round to all lecturers in Nigerian versities asking them to embark on "a total and indefinite strike action from 1st July, 2013." A Professor of the University who spoke to on the condition of anonymity disclosed that ASUU has called for a meeting on Tuesday 2nd July, 2013 to officially make a public announce of this action.
Students on ground at UNIPORT expressed their dismay at the pace of incessant academic strikes in Nigeria complaining that this marks the beginning of a long time of boredom for them.
