Cursory: Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Chairman, Osodeke has hinted at the high possibility of another strike following the federal government’s failure to fulfill the alleged promise it made to the union.
Nigerian universities might be shut down again as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) hinted at the possibility of returning to strike this year if the Federal Government fails to meet its demands.
ASUU President Emmanuel Osodeke disclosed this in an interview with The ICIR on Thursday, January 19, 2023.
According to the union president, the government had yet to address the issues that led to previous industrial actions that lasted eight months.
Speaking during the interview on the possibility of another industrial strike, Osodeke said:
“It is not possible in this country, except we have a set of leaders that will be elected and will be human beings and think about the system.”
He said ASUU members continued working because they wanted the best for the nation.
The union leader, however, pointed out that his group was waiting for the government to fulfill its promises which led to the suspension of the union’s eight-month strike in 2022.
