The Academic Staff Union of Universities’ National Strike Organising Committee met to decide how to proceed with the union’s ongoing strike, according to The NIGERIANWATCH.
The committee is made up of senior union officials.
According to our correspondent, zonal meetings will begin by the end of the week, after which branches will hold congresses.
This was revealed to The NIGERIANWATCH by a member of the union’s National Executive Council who did not want his name printed because he was not permitted to speak on the matter.
“The National Strike Organising Committee will meet today (Wednesday), after which zonal meetings will begin this weekend, followed by congresses.”
“From there, information on the next development will be passed on to our members; the president cannot decide alone, there are processes,” he said.
Meanwhile, ASUU President Prof Emmanuel Osodeke urged Nigerian students on Wednesday not to vote for politicians whose children are studying in institutions outside the country.
Osodeke spoke at a Premium Times Twitter Space Webinar titled ‘ASUU Strike, Revitalisation Fund, and the Way Forward.’
“Anyone you believe cannot protect your interests, whose children are studying or living abroad, do not vote for them.”
“I repeat, you do not need to vote for them,” he said, “because you do not vote for people who will take your life.”
According to NIGERIANWATCH, the ASUU has been on strike since February 14, 2022.
On Tuesday, a meeting between the union and the federal government ended in a stalemate.
