The National Executive Council of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended its ongoing strike action which affects public universities by four weeks.
ASUU has been on its prolonged action since 14 February.
A statement made available to The PUNCH in Abuja confirmed the development.
It partly reads: “Following extensive deliberations and taking cognisance of government’s past failures to abide by its own timelines in addressing issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action, NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for four weeks to give government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.
“The role-over strike action is with effect from 12.01 a.m. on Monday, 1 August 2022″.
For almost six months, ASUU has been pressing home some demands, including the call for the government to implement the Memorandum of Action on funding for the revitalisation of public universities, which was signed in December 2020.
Other demands are Earned Academic Allowances, renegotiation of the 2009 agreement and the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution among others.
