The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) early Monday morning extended the ongoing strike by 12 weeks.
The decision was taken at an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) held at ASUU Secretariat in Abuja.
The emergency meeting, which had in attendance principal officers and branch chairmen, started on Sunday and ended early Monday morning,.
The two month rollover strike declared in March 14, 2022 by ASUU ended today (May 9th), thus NEC felt the need to extend it by 12 weeks after initial agitation for indefinite strike because of failure to address the issues in contention.
The implication of the extension of the strike is that public universities would remain closed. (Sun)
