ASUU STRIKE UPDATE – VCs To Meet In Akure On Monday

Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities will meet in Akure, Ondo State, on Monday to deliberate on the strike embarked upon by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

This came as students of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife on Wednesday, urged the Federal Government to implement immediately the various agreements it reached with labour unions in the nation’s tertiary institutions.

Also, OAU lecturers have insisted that the ongoing nationwide strike is not politically motivated.

Lecturers in the public universities embarked on strike last July to protest against the non-implementation of the agreement they reached with the FG in 2009.

Other associations like the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics and the Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union have also threatened to embark on industrial action to protest the non-implementation of agreements they reached with the FG.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Prof. Adedayo Fasakin, while addressing journalists in Akure on Wednesday, said the vice-chancellors would also discuss other problems facing the nation’s universities.
