Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has told students and their parents not to expect suspension of ongoing strike by its members soon, advising lecturers to seek alternative means of survival.
The union’s Abuja Zonal Coordinator, Prof. Theophilus Lagi, who stated this on Tuesday, November 17, at a briefing at the University of Abuja campus, vowed to press home with the strike until government bowed to its demands.
It accused the government of not showing commitment in resolving the issues that necessitated the ongoing industrial action.
According to Vanguard, the union stated: “Today, we wish to let Nigerians, especially our students and parents know that there is no hope in sight to ending or suspending the ASUU strike that has lingered for several months as government is yet to show serious commitment towards addressing our core demands.
Our members have been advised to seek other legitimate means of survival as the government has not released salaries withheld since February, 2020.”
