UPDATE: ASUU To Decide On Nation Wide Strike This Weekend

There is a report reaching us stating that the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, [ASUU] will hold a crucial meeting this weekend to determine if the union will proceed on a nation wide strike action.

ASUU had earlier asked all its branches in the various universities to conduct referendum of members to decide whether or not a nationwide strike should be held over its demands.

The final decision on the strike is expected to be made after a review of the referendum conducted by the chapters.

An earlier deadline given by ASUU to the federal government to meet its demands ended today (Friday).

The scheduled meeting where ASUU will take its final decision starts today (Friday) and ends on Sunday (August 13) in Abuja.


ASUU major demands include issues concerning the welfare of members as well as funding of universities among others. The Union and the federal government have been negotiating these demands since November 2016.
