The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) extended the existing strike by 12 weeks early Monday morning.



The decision was made at a special National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held at the ASUU Secretariat in Abuja.

The emergency meeting began on Sunday and finished early Monday morning, with major officers and branch chairpersons in attendance.

The two-month rollover strike launched by ASUU on March 14, 2022, ended today (May 9th), prompting the NEC to extend it by 12 weeks following the initial agitation for an indefinite strike due to failure to address the issues under contention.

The implication of the extension of the strike is that public universities would remain closed.

At the last meeting with the government negotiation team led by Prof. Nimi Briggs, ASUU officials worked out, but there was an indication that both parties would meet next week.

ASUU’s demands include the non-implementation of the Memorandum of Action (MoA) signed with the government in December 2020 on funding for the revitalisation of public universities (both federal and states), renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU Agreement and the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

Other outstanding issues are earned academic allowances, state universities, promotion arrears, withheld salaries, non-remittance of third-party deductions, and rejection of UTAS that ASUU technical team developed to replace the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).
