The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Bayero University Kano (BUK) branch has joined the ongoing industrial action declared by the National Executive Council of the union on Monday, 5th of November 2018.
The chairman of BUK chapter of ASUU, Mr. Ibrahim Barde disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kano on Wednesday.
Barde said the strike which started at 2pm on Wednesday would continue indefinitely until all the demands of the union were met.
“We have commenced the indefinite strike as directed by the National body of ASUU,” Barde said.
“We have also decided to go on the strike because the government did not also meet our demands on the Memorandum of Action signed between the two parties,” he added.
