BREAKING NEWS: ASUU Strike Continues As Union Demands Strong Commitment From Federal Government

The Leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has insisted tonight that there is no going back on its ongoing nationwide strike.

The union stated this despite meeting with the Federal Government today Monday (21st January) in Abuja to resolve the issues raised by the lecturers which led to the industrial action in the universities that has lasted over two months since they embark on it.
The meeting reconvened by Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige, with the leaders of the union led by ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, failed to bring an end to the strike as the issues could not be resolved tonight.
The striking lecturers insisted that the Federal Government must show a strong commitment in funding and revitalisation of universities before they would suspend the ongoing strike.
