The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has joined the ongoing ASUU strike which was declared on Monday by the union’s National Executive Committee (NEC)
Dr. Dele Ashiru, the chairman of the UNILAG ASUU chapter, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.
According to NAN, Mr. Ashiru said the strike directive has been carried out fully in the institution.
“We have achieved 100 percent compliance with the directive handed to us by the union’s executives,” he said.
On the appeal to ASUU by the federal government, Mr. Ashiru had this to say “government’s appeal is coming late because we gave them more than six months’ notice prior to our action.
“We even addressed the press on this, begging the government to see reasons with us, but it refused.
“Now, we have reached a point of ‘no return’ until government meets our demands substantially,” Ashiru said.
UNILAG students are on vacation and were supposed to resume back to school on the 18th of November for the first semester of the 2018/19 academic session, NAN reports.
