The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has opted to embark on one month warning strike.
This was announced at a press briefing after ASUU rounded off it’s National Executive Council Meeting in Lagos.
TVC News reliably gathered that the strike is to allow the Federal Government do the needful failure to which the union would go on an indefinite strike.
According to a source who was part of the meeting, the one month warning strike is expected to allow see the need to act fast. “We just want to give the government a long rope hoping that it would see the need to avoid a total paralysis of academic activities in the nation’s universities. We are parents too and have our children in the system but we cannot watch and allow the total collapse of education in the country.
“Our agitation is in the interest of all and if the system is made better, we will all enjoy it. Prominent personalities in the country have waded into the matter but the government seems recalcitrant. Our National President would explain more when he briefs the press later today,” he said.
It would be recalled that issues of contention have remained the payment of Earned Academic Allowance, revitalization fund, the replacement of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System, IPPIS, with the University Transparency and Accountability System UTAS, among others.
