The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has announces its readiness on embarking on an indefinite strike as they accuse the Federal Government of dribbling them.
Some days ago, the union made it known that it was ready to embark on another strike as they declared Monday a lecture-free.
ASUU has said that its member in university across the country will go on another strike if FG refuses to implement the Memorandum Of Action(MOA) which was signed last year.
The Chairman of ASUU in the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Dr Biodun Olaniran, and Secretary, Dr Toyin Abegunrin made this statement on Monday.
ASUU made it known that they are ready to embark on an indefinite strike if the Federal Government fails to accede to its demands.
According to them, the FG was not ready to do the needful.
According to source, ASUU urged Nigerians to prevail on the government to avert the impending strike and said that it has sent many stakeholders to talk to the government, this portraying the union as a dog, which could only bark but could not bite.
The statement released by the union read;
“Our union, ASUU, is using this medium to call upon the Federal Government of Nigeria once again to implement the agreement it signed with ASUU. It is unfortunate to mention that the FG signed an agreement with the ASUU since 2009, but the agreement is not implemented till date.
“The agreement was renegotiated in the name of peace. But to our dismay, the government has refused to sign the renegotiated agreement. In order to make the implementation of the agreement easy for the FG, the union has limited its demand to only three.
“These include the signing/implementation of the renegotiated agreement of 2009; and the adoption of the University Transparency and Accountability Software instead of the controversial IPPIS.”
