Just in: ASUU extends strike by two months


News reaching this medium has it that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended its ongoing strike action by another eight weeks (two months).

Recall that the union had a month ago declared a 30- day strike action in the first instance in its face-off with the Federal Government.

The resolution to extend the strike action was reached after a meeting held on Sunday.

An ASUU official, Prof. Abdulkadir Muhammad Danbazau,  quoted by The Guardian who confirmed the report, said the decision to extend the strike was to allow the union and government reach agreement in order to avoid any other strike in future.

He added that the two months were enough for the government to do the right thing on the lingering issues.
