The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended the ongoing strike for another 12 weeks (3 months).

The union president, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed the union’s decision on Monday.

Prof. Osodeke said the decision was taken in National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held on Sunday, 8th May, 2022 at University of Abuja, Abuja.

He explained the 12 weeks extension is to give the Federal Government more time to resolve all the outstanding issues.

“The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) held an emergency meeting on Sunday, 8th May 2022 at the Comrade Festus Iyayi National Secretariat, University of Abuja, Abuja.

“After extensive deliberations, noting Government’s failure to live up to its responsibilities and speedily address all the issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action (MoA) within the additional eight-week roll–over strike period declared on 14th March 2022, NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for twelve weeks to give Government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues,” he said.
