ASUU: Union speaks on some public universities attempting to call off strike


The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has reacted to the alleged plan by some public institutions to pull out of the ongoing strike.

Some public universities are on the verge of boycotting the over 8 weeks’ strike, and have threatened to return their students to classrooms.

But speaking in an interview with journalists in Lagos, the National President of the Union, Prof. Biotin Ogunyemi, accused the Federal Government of making moves to break its ranks.

According to him, “We know that there are some moves by government agents at federal and state levels to break our ranks.

“But our members are getting back to us and to a large extent now, our members are resolute.

“Yes, there are some overzealous chancellors and administrators in one or two universities who are trying to brake these ranks.

“However, on the scale of balance, they are not having their ways.

“Our union shall handle that.”
