Sack Us If You Can ~ ASUU Dares Federal Government

The Academic Staff Union of Universities have dared the federal government not to resume on Monday.

ASUU stated that its members will not resume  despite the fresh ultimatum issued to the union by the Federal Government to call off its strike or be sacked.

After reviewing the seven day ultimatum earlier issued the striking universities lecturers, which elapsed on December 4, the government shifted resumption day to December 9 even as the lecturers ignored the ultimatum. Supervising Minister of Education, 

Nyesom Wike, who announced the shift in the date also said the shift in the resumption date was a mark of respect for the former National President of the ASUU, Prof. Festus Iyayi, who died in an auto accident on his way to a National Executive Committee meeting of the union in Kano. 

National Treasurer of the union, Dr. Ademola Aremu, who spoke with our correspondent in Ibadan, said the union members would not resume until their demands were met by the FG.

He said the president has not responded to the letter written to him adding that the lecturers are still on strike.

ASUU said it is asking government to perfect the documentation binding the agreement they had with the president.
