ASUU Strike Update: No Threat Can Break The Ongoing Strike, ASUU Tells FG

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said that the declared threat of the federal government to implement its ‘No work No pay’ policy cannot break the ongoing strike describing it as an ‘obsolete familiar threat’.

ASUU in a press release tagged “ASUU: ON GOVT THREAT OF NO WORK, NO PAY”signed by the Chairman of the University of Ibadan chapter of the union Dr Olusegun Ajiboye today in Ibadan and made available to journalists said members of the union have resolved to pursue the ongoing strike to a logical conclusion to revitalize the public universities with or without strike.

He stated clearly that ASUU members are totally resolved and convinced that the current struggle embarked upon by the union is a just one to defend the integrity of the university system in Nigeria and save it from universal mockery.

Dr Ajiboye maintained that the minimum funding requirement to public universities as at 2013 is N500 billion and not N100 billion as being touted by the federal government adding that anything short of that is unacceptable to the union.
