The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has vowed not to return to class until its demands are met.
ASUU embarked on the strike four weeks ago and in a statement issued by its National President, Biodun Ogunyemi on Sunday said they will continue until the Federal Government meets their demands.
Ogunyemi’s statement said, “We met with the Honourable Minister of Education in line with our tradition to honour all invitations with openness to meaningful discussion of issues contained in our demand, so far, nothing concrete has come out of the meetings; rather it is still a projection of their ‘keep-them talking’ culture.”
“Our members are enjoined to disregard any information from any source other than the official union source which is the branch chairperson.”
He also warned university authorities against undermining the “strike by organising or attending meetings, examinations, lectures, convocations, conferences or other activities during the strike.”
According to him, any examination taken during this period will be challenged by ASUU after the strike, adding that, “Our commitment and integrity are the basis of our pride as Academics. We must avoid actions that undermine our struggle.”
The strike embarked upon by ASUU had since grounded academic and non-academic activities at universities across the nation forcing hundreds of thousands of Nigerian university students to be out of school.
