Nigeria: Three month old Universities strike ends

BY: Vanguard Nigeria

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has, Thursday, suspended the over three months-old strike it embarked upon since Sunday, 4th November, 2018.

The union suspended the strike after a memorandum of Action, MoA, it reached with the Federal government towards the revitalisation of public universities.

The ASUU National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi who announced the suspension, however, said that the union had embarked on the strike to “stem the continued slide into rot and decay in public universities since the 1980s.”

He however decried the unpatriotic attitudes of some university chancellors whom he said tried to undermine the union’s struggle towards ensuring that universities in the country are revitalised.
