The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, has called on the striking academic staff of the Nigerian public Universities to get ready for a long strike.
He claimed that the Federal Government is yet to show any commitment in rescuing public schools from collapsing.
According to the reports by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the union president advised ASUU members to be on the watch and preapare for a long drawn out struggle to salvage the university system,
Ogunyemi, according to NAN, stated this in a strike Bulletin No. 5 sent to all the members of the union.
“Government is yet to change its ‘keep them talking’ style and stance as all the meetings held so far with the Minister of Education are yet to resolve any of the demands of ASUU,” Ogunyemi stated.
