Tension as ASUU Threatens Nationwide Strike


The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has threatened to embark on a nationwide strike if FG fails to begin total implementation of the 2009 ASUU-FG agreement, especially the NEEDS assessment agreement.

The body also urged Education Minister, Adamu Adamu, to reverse the ban on Post UTME, Leadership reports.

“The cancellation of Post-UTME, to us, portends serious danger for the quality of education in this country. The argument of the federal government on the policy is unacceptable and potentially harmful to the future of Nigeria’s education system,” ASUU president, Biodun Ogunyemi said on Monday.
