Barring any last minute changes, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has on Tuesday threatened to embark on an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.
Ifeanyi Abada, the Chairman of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) Chapter of the Academic staff Union of Universities (ASUU), made this known on Tuesday in Nsukka, Enugu State.
The threat is coming on a day the university lecturers ended their one week ‘nationwide’ warning strike.
A meeting between the leadership of the union and the Senate on Monday had ended in a deadlock.
“ASUU was left with no option than to proceed on the one-week warning strike; failure to meet our demands, we will go on an indefinite strike,” Mr. Abada told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
He said that the chapter complied fully with the warning strike directive.
“The National Executive Committee (NEC) made efforts to resolve this issue with the government but government remained unyielding.
“The strike compliance in UNN is total, no lectures, no examinations, no departmental and faculty meetings, as members will not participate.
“UNN chapter will not renege on the directive of the national body until government addresses all the issues raised.
“Our monitoring team is moving round; any lecturer found teaching will be sanctioned accordingly.’’
